For the month of April and May, 2016, the Grayson County Sheriff’s Office attempted to serve approximately 650 court papers. Of the 650 papers, 350 were actually served. Our deputies wrote 190 citations, opened 34 criminal cases and made 120 criminal arrests. In lieu of traffic citations, our deputies wrote 71 courtesy notices, conducted over 119 vehicle inspections and assisted 75 motorists on Grayson County’s roads.
We removed seven drunk drivers from the roadway and answered over 1,050 calls for service. Deputies conducted approximately 148 extra patrol requests and were involved in over 80 special details or programs. We also investigated 80 crashes with 24 involving injuries of citizens on Grayson County roads.
The months of April and May also showed a significant increase in calls for service for GCSO deputies. For the month of May alone, deputies answered over 540 calls for service. That averages out to be about 18 calls per day every day of the month. Calls for service may include anything from cattle in the road to a serious domestic violence call or fatality crash. Months like May are a common occurrence for our Office, and we would like to thank our citizens for their continued support and patience when responding to calls.
As a result of releasing the names of persons with warrants and criminal summons, Grayson County citizens continue to come to the office to turn themselves in or take care of a summons to court, thus reducing manpower and fuel it would take to go look for them.
For June and the rest of 2016, GCSO Deputies, KSP, Leitchfield Police Department and other agencies will continue to patrol, conduct traffic safety checkpoints and enforce Kentucky’s traffic laws to ensure that motorists are sober and buckled up.
July’s Town Hall Meeting will be held at the Millwood Community Center on July 14th, 2016 at 6 p.m. Millwood residents are encouraged to attend, but all Grayson County residents are invited. Refreshments will be served.
