Lyon County Sheriff’s Report – Week of March 12, 2017

McNeil

Sheriff’s Message, Week of March 12th  

Community Friends,

One never knows when something said could produce a profound learning lesson. A Fernley business owner once stated, “Every so often, we give up power by choosing one of our own to keep the peace and enforce the laws.” While this individual has no law enforcement background, he is extremely grounded in the principles of liberty as it relates to our constitution. A very wise man indeed. Read more ›

Sheriff’s Message, Week of March 5th

Community Friends,

Our week was filled with two great community events. On Monday Dayton Elementary hosted a coordinated Career Day for several area elementary schools. Some of our dispatchers and a deputy represented the LCSO to interact with 4th, 5th, and 6th NewsDesk March 12, 2017 - McNeilgraders. On Wednesday, we participated with our Department of Corrections partners for a Special Olympics Tip-a-Cop fundraiser at Dayton’s 1st & Ten restaurant.

Sheriff’s Message, Week of February 26th

Community Friends,

Several years ago, an illegal alien kidnapped his ex-wife, drove her into the desert, put a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her. Fortunately, she was able to escape, call the Sheriff’s Office as he fled into the desert. We tracked him to a home that he broke into to escape apprehension. We knew the family who occupied the home: a mother, father, and daughter who were also illegal aliens. We afforded this family constitutional 4th Amendment protections as they gave us consent to search their home for the fugitive. We found him hiding under their master bedroom bed. Read more ›

McNeil

Sheriff’s Message, Week of February 19th

Community Friends,

Last year our Dispatch Communication Center processed approximately 42,000 police, ambulance, and fire calls. In 2015, that number was just over 47,000. Every ten minutes, they are receiving information, inputting computerized data, responding appropriate resources for emergency and non-emergency calls, and monitoring resource needs and requests until the call has been completed. Everything they do is subject to civil and criminal litigation discovery; therefore they adhere to established industry standards. Read more ›
