Currently the LCSO has 41 people in custody at the Daviess Dekalb County Regional Jail, 11 of which are female detainees.

2 different detainees within the last 2 weeks were required to be directed out of the Livingston County Courthouse due to their improper behavior. One male detainee was jerking around hard enough that he and a female detention officer ended up on the ground and he was then observed placing cigarette(s) in his mouth. The situation was quickly under control with the assistance of a LCSO officer.

The LCSO has the ability to help any of our citizens who have a pet that gets lots or stolen.
