For the month of July, the SCSO answered a total of 651 calls for service. A total of 40 arrests were made for the county. My deputies made 53 traffic stops; and from those stops, 34 warnings and 16 citations were issued. Our office took a total of 102 reports for the month of July.
Through generous donations from citizens in Shelby County, our office was able to purchase a medication disposal unit. We are incredibly grateful for the support that made this project happen. The disposal is available for use to the public 24-hours a day, seven days a week. If you need assistance or have questions relating to what may or may not be able to be disposed of, please contact Leah Chase, our Public Relations Director, and she may assist you.
Patrol deputies have begun security checks at businesses and churches during their shifts. If you notice a red door hanger, this is our way of letting you know that we have stopped by and checked the property. I also want to remind our citizens of our house check program. If you plan on being out of town for a period of time, our deputies can check your property until you return. Stop by our office, fill out a form and we will take care of the rest.

Stay safe, Shelby County! Let us know if you need us!
