Sheriff’s Message, Week of August 12th

Community Friends,

Our deputies walk into risky situations and encounter tragedy on a regular basis. Some may witness horror that stays with them for the rest of their lives. Others are physically injured in carrying out their du­ties, sometimes needlessly, through mistakes made in high stress situations. As a result, we are like every law enforcement agency in that physical, mental, and emotional injuries plagues all of our staff, which includes our dispatchers and jail control room operators.

Lyon County Sheriff’s report – Week of July 1, 2018

McNeil 3

Community Friends,

This week’s local paper headlined “County D.A. investigating alleged sex scandal at sheriff’s office.” Because the case is being reviewed by the D.A., most of the investigation details still cannot be released. However, here are the releasable facts as briefed to me by our jail commander Frank Hunewill several months ago. Read more ›

Lyon County Sheriff’s report – Week of May 13, 2018

Sheriff’s Message, Week of May 13th

Community Friends,

It was quite interesting as I listened to one of the jurors in the Dustin Cooper murder trial. It seemed many jurors were offended as Cooper’s paid defense lawyer attacked our detectives and deputies on the witness stand. It seems when facts are clearly presented, the modus operandi is to attack a person’s character. We were blessed by a jury that made their decision based on facts and not by emotion. Read more ›

Sheriff’s Message, Week of May 6th

Community Friends,

There are times when an idea forms during social gatherings among friends, especially after a provoking question. Back in March while reading an event brochure, it stated that any individual who cannot pass a firearm background check will not get the awarded gun nor will they get any refund. Which led to the question, why isn’t the Sheriff’s Office being notified of a denied transaction of a firearm? Read more ›

Sheriff’s Message, Week of April 29th  

Community Friends,

In 2006, the federal government enacted the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act. In 2007, the Nevada legislature followed suit passing AB579, that would transition convicted sex offender registration from the framework of Megan’s Law to the Adam Walsh guidelines. Since 2007, Nevada has been battling the ACLU in both federal and state courts. On April 27th, the Nevada Supreme Court issued an order denying the petition that now clears the way for AB579 implementation. Read more ›
