Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office personnel responded to 85 calls for service from a little before 4pm until just after 9pm last evening.


The vast majority of those were crashes, slide offs, and motorists stuck in the roadway. However, domestic disturbances and other emergencies did not stop due to the weather.


The roads were treacherous, but officers traveled not just on the highways, but to some of the most rural parts of the county to assist those in need.


" Thank you to our second shift crew (Capt. Lonnie Johnson, Andrew Tillett, Brenten Trueblood, Thomas Porter), the third shift crew who came in three hours early (Clifford Pruett, Bailey Duprey, Kenton Carter), and Detective Chris Griggs for all your hard work! You all knocked it out of the park,"


" Thanks to dispatchers Kennedy Lively, Daniel Leach, and Davis Miller for efficiently and professionally directing resources to where they were needed, while being the calm voice to those calling for help.


"Also, thank you to Jackson’s Heavy Haul, Stone City Towing, and Bland’s Wrecker Service for their non-stop assistance in clearing the scenes. Finally, a huge shout out to the County Highway Department for their work in getting the roadways passable once the snowfall slowed. Great job everyone. We appreciate your efforts," Sheriff Day wrote in the Facebook Post.
