Sheriff’s Message, Week of June 11th

Community Friends,

The other day as I was working on some irrigation pipe early in the morning, there was an unregistered vehicle parked on a BLM dirt road next to the barbed wire fence. The sight of the vehicle seemed a bit odd and out of place. I crossed the fence to check on the vehicle and its three occupants. To my surprise sat the driver with a butane torch and a marijuana pipe. Read more ›

Sheriff’s Message, Week of May 28th

Community Friends,

During the past several months, there has been a lot of flooding discussion. And although the majority of the snow pack has yet to melt off, there is another concern. Lately, we have been seeing too many residential and wildland fires in central Lyon County and in Fernley. Read more ›

Sheriff’s Message, Week of May 21st    

Community Friends,

Something is a bit strange this year during Lake Lahontan’s Memorial Day Weekend. While the State Recreational Area is filled with families, campers, and water enthusiasts, there has not been any serious incidents during the past two night. Even staff has commented how “mellow” it’s been compared to previous years. People are respecting each other and just enjoying a great family weekend. Read more ›

Community Friends,

There is an old saying, “The good Lord willing, and the Creeks don’t rise.” And while several classic songs helped to immortalize saying into our culture, it had nothing to do water and flooding. Ironically, it originated with the 1813 Creek Nation uprising in the Mississippi Territory. Read more ›

Sheriff’s Message, Week of April 23rd

Community Friends,

Lyon County has some great crime related numbers to boast about. Over the past two years our crime rate index is down 33-percent to a rate that hasn’t been experienced since 2007. Our burglaries dropped 36-percent last year, while our recidivates were reduced by 8-percent. The LCSO worked hard to achieve this type of success, but we didn’t do it alone. These numbers are the result of good policies through collaborative efforts with our county and city partners that includes our community friends. Read more ›

Sheriff’s Message, Week of April 16th

Community Friends,

Like many of you, there are times when we are frustrated by layers of a bureaucratic system. Occasionally, we get an opportunity to rejoice, especially as it relates to the young and vulnerable. This week was one of those small victories as we assisted in removing a two-year old boy from drug addict parents and placing him with a family member through an emergency guardianship order. We never lose hope, as we look at saving the world, one child at a time. Read more ›
