The Grayson County Sheriff’s Office has released its activity report for the month of October, 2015.
During October, the Grayson County Sheriff’s Office (GCSO) attempted to serve approximately 490 court papers. Of those 490 papers, 172 were actually served.
GCSO deputies wrote 31 citations, opened 24 criminal cases, and made 28 criminal arrests.
In lieu of traffic citations, deputies wrote eight courtesy notices, conducted over 40 vehicle inspections, and assisted 25 motorists on Grayson County’s roads. The GCSO removed five drunk drivers from the roadway and answered over 526 citizen complaints.
Deputies conducted approximately 44 extra patrol requests and were involved in over 40 special details or programs. The GCSO also investigated 22 crashes with 12 of those involving injuries of 19 citizens on Grayson County roads.
These statistics do not include assisting other agencies, which includes but is not limited to the investigation and apprehension of 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 that commit crimes against this county and our law abiding citizens,” said Grayson County Sheriff Norman Chaffins in a press release.
GCSO deputies, Kentucky State Police, Leitchfield Police Department, the Greater Hardin County Narcotics Task Force, 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 November and the rest of the year at approved locations throughout Grayson County.
