Additional Information:

This has been a busy time for the LCSO with many on-going investigations, assisting other agencies, and collecting much evidence on various crimes.

LCSO staff has been working on multiple fugitive investigations and talking with area agencies in attempt to get active warrants served.

On July 17 the LCSO had only 16 people in custody at the Daviess Dekalb County Regional Jail, 4 of which were female detainees. This is the fewest people we have had incarcerated in quite some time. July 19 we were up to 17 people in custody.  Hopefully the trend continues.

Have a great week!
