From the Izard County Sheriff’s Office:
The new year starts off busy for the Izard County Sheriff’s Office.
During January dispatch received 379 calls for service. Deputies completed 118 incident reports and completed 20 motor vehicle accident reports. 16 felony cases were filed with the Izard County Circuit Clerks office. Deputies also served 56 civil papers. Jail staff booked a total of 113 inmates with a daily average of 42 inmates.
Our deputies are dedicated to getting cases solved and work with investigators to get suspects charged. Deputies are remaining proactive in efforts to keep crimes rates down. Many times, officers rely on the community for help to be proactive and keep crimes down. Every crime tip is reviewed and will remain anonymous. If you have any information on a case or you see a crime in progress, we ask that you call the Sheriff’s Office.
We also have a peer program for those who struggle with addiction to drugs and alcohol. If you or someone you know struggles with these addictions and want help, call the Sheriff’s Office and we can get you in touch with a peer.
