For the month of July and August, 2015 the Grayson County Sheriff’s Office (GCSO) attempted to serve approximately 560 court papers. Of those 560 papers, 249 were actually served.
Deputies wrote 70 citations, opened 41 criminal cases, and made 75 criminal arrests. In lieu of traffic citations, deputies wrote 68 courtesy notices, conducted over 137 vehicle inspections, and assisted 62 motorists on Grayson County’s roads.
The GCSO removed eight drunk drivers from the roadway and answered over 1,000 citizen complaints. Deputies responded to approximately 80 extra patrol requests and were involved in over 90 special details or programs. The GCSO also investigated over 76 injury and non-injury crashes on Grayson County roads.
These statistics do not include assisting other agencies, which includes, but is not limited to the investigation and apprehension of several meth labs, synthetic drug dealers, thieves, marijuana growers, and other drug dealers and their competition.
The GCSO and other police agencies will continue to utilize every resource available and vigorously pursue those those that commit crimes against this county and our law-abiding citizens.
GCSO Deputies, Kentucky State Police, Leitchfield Police Department, and other agencies will be out in force conducting traffic safety checkpoints to ensure that motorists are sober, buckled up, and obeying Kentucky’s traffic laws. Traffic safety checkpoints will continue throughout the month of September and the rest of the year at approved locations throughout Grayson County.
