For the month of December 2015, the Grayson County Sheriff’s Office (GCSO) attempted to serve approximately 389 court papers, and, of the 389 papers, 163 were actually served.

GCSO deputies wrote 64 citations, opened nine criminal cases, and made 55 criminal arrests. In lieu of traffic citations, deputies wrote 11 courtesy notices, conducted over 63 vehicle inspections, and assisted 27 motorists on Grayson County’s roads.

The GCSO removed three drunk drivers from the roadway and answered over 420 citizen complaints. Deputies conducted approximately 57 extra patrol requests and were involved in over 38 special details or programs.

The GCSO also investigated 28 crashes with three of those involving injuries of three citizens on Grayson County roads. In addition to police duties, office staff collected and distributed millions of dollars in property taxes during the month of December.

The month of December also showed a significant decrease in non-injury and injury crashes in Grayson County.

“We attribute this decrease to the continued extra patrols and traffic enforcement conducted by GCSO Deputies and KSP Troopers out in the county,” Grayson County Sheriff Norman Chaffins said in a recent news release.

As a result of releasing the names of persons with warrants and criminal summonses, Grayson County citizens continue to come to the office to turn themselves in or take care of a summons to court, thus reducing the manpower and fuel it would take to go look for them.

GCSO Deputies, Kentucky State Police (KSP), Leitchfield Police Department, the Greater Hardin County Narcotics Task Force, and other agencies will continue to patrol and enforce Kentucky’s traffic laws to ensure that motorists are sober and buckled up.
