Lyon County Sheriff’s Message, Week of January 31th, 2016

McNeil

Sheriff’s Message, Week of January 31th

Community Friends,

One of the toughest things that our deputies encounter are serious injuries to an infant or child. It takes great restraint to allow the criminal justice system in bringing case closure, especially when it may take months or years. This month, an individual arrested in 2010 finally goes to trial for the death of a child. Read more ›

Lyon County Sheriff’s Message, Week of January 17th, 2016

Sheriff’s Message, Week of January 17th

Community Friends,

A year ago, we conducted an analyses of our population densities, area distances, and reassigned staff to our more populated Fernley and Dayton communities. With only one deputy to cover all of Mason and Smith Valleys, we were relying on the Yerington Police Department and NHP (when available) to be their back up. Part of this decision’s risk management was the belief we could add the Yerington Paiute Tribal Police Department (YPTPD) through cross commissioning because they are Nevada POST certified.

Lyon County Sheriff’s Report – Week of January 3, 2016

McNeil

Sheriff’s Message, Week of January 3rd

Community Friends,

This week’s message begins with the recognition of Deputy Stephanie Haas who was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal for her actions in a 2014 officer involved shooting that occurred in Silver Springs. The award was given during this month’s Spring Springs Advisory Board Meeting. While some of the delay in giving her timely recognition was my fault, the assailant was found guilty by a jury trial last summer and is currently serving a prison sentence for assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer. What matters most in this case is that Deputy Haas responded courageously and that the citizens of Lyon County support its law enforcement by saying, “if you pull a gun on a deputy, you are going to prison.” Thank you for that support.
