Sheriff’s Message, Week of January 29th

Data is useful to analyze crime trends and provides a tool to develop public safety strategies. Five key areas we looked are housing and business units, poverty level, population and population densities. Read more ›

Lyon County Sheriff Report – Week of Januarry 22, 2017

Sheriff’s Message, Week of January 22nd

Community Friends,

Decades ago, it was rare that any police officer ever shot someone. In fact, many officers prided themselves on a career in which they never pulled their pistol out of the holster, except when at the range. Sadly, we live in a different era when our deputies have to routinely pull their pistols out of the holster for calls such as in progress burglaries, alarm calls, and “man with a gun.” Read more ›

Sheriff’s Message, Week of December 25th   

Community Friends,

Welcome to the New Year, as we survived 2016 together. Looking back, the murders of Toni Davis (Dayton), Johnnie Shadden (Yerington) and Robert Buchanan (Silver Springs) really shocked each community. Unprecedented was two officer involved shootings and two separate reckless vehicle pursuits with drug impaired drivers that had to be stopped; one who threatened the safety of a neighborhood and the other who drove into oncoming I-80 traffic.

Lyon County Sheriff’s Message – Week of December 4, 2016

Sheriff’s Message, Week of December 4th

Community Friends,

This week’s big event was our movement into the new Silver Springs substation. We are now co-located with Lyon County’s Human Services, who provide many support services such as a health nurse, WIC, senior services, and case management for families and individuals. Our assessments identified that law enforcement and Human Services were interacting with the same individuals, but our respective agencies did not know each others capabilities. By co-locating, we strengthen our operational bonds while becoming more efficient. Silver Springs is our pilot program, and our future goal is to eventually join together in Dayton and Fernley to better serve those communities. Read more ›
