SHERIFF'S CORNER: Calls for Service - July 2021

With this edition of the Sheriff's Corner, I thought it would be a good idea to initiate a new segment called the monthly "calls for service" report. This will provide you with an idea of the prior month's response for public safety services within the county. This is gross information, meaning some of these calls may have initiated some other action that is not specifically noted in the report.
