Ref: Covid-19 procedures
The Sheriff’s Office is continuing business as normal, as we deal with public emergencies and victims of crimes, we cannot shut down our public contact. We will still respond to calls for service in a timely manner as always. We do ask that if you have any symptoms of the Covid-19 virus, or if you or any family members have traveled to or from any areas that this virus has effected, please make our dispatch and our Deputy aware of this, so that we can take necessary precautions. We will also be taking some information reports over the phone, depending on the nature of the call.
We are aware that there are building concerns and stressful situations for families all over the county, unfortunately, this potentially results in arguments and/or domestic violence situations that our Deputies have to respond to. So, in anticipation of the added calls that we may be responding to, we have assigned the School Resource Deputies, which are out of school, for the time being, to assist the patrol deputies with handling calls for service. The Deputies have also been provided with the necessary personal protective equipment to be as safe and protected as possible.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation,
Larry Lane, Sequoyah County Sheriff
