Delaware County Sheriff's Office News

Honoring all who have served; thank you! You will never be forgotten.

Good work Deputy Curtis, keep it up! Only a few weeks left to go...

Recently when our undercover DTF agents spotted a subject wanted on an outstanding warrant, our cameras were there to capture the action! We look forward to showing you more behind-the-scenes action as our deputies serve the citizens of Delaware County in the weeks and months to come!

Please, pay attention while driving and help prevent tragedy!

Teens are busier than ever: studying, extracurricular activities, part-time jobs, and spending time with friends are among the long list of things they do to fill their time. However, with these activities, teens tend to compromise something very important — sleep. This is a dangerous habit that can lead to drowsy driving.

TALK TO YOUR TEEN ABOUT SAFE DRIVING HABITS National Teen Driver Safety Week is October 21-27, 2018 This week is a great opportunity for parents to start – and hopefully, continue – having conversations with their teens about the importance of driving safely. Whether teens are driving a car, truck, or SUV, the rules stay the same, and they shouldn’t have the keys if they don’t know them. The greatest dangers for teen drivers are alcohol consumption, inconsistent or no seat belt use, distracted and drowsy driving, speeding, and driving with passengers in the vehicle.

Teen drivers transporting passengers can lead to disastrous consequences. Research shows that the risk of a fatal crash goes up dramatically in direct relation to the number of passengers in a car.

Sheriff Ray Dudley welcomes his first grandchild, Ella Rose Dudley, into the world this afternoon at IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital. Ella is the daughter of Ray’s son Josh and his wife Brittany. Congratulations Grandpa!

Distractions while driving are more than just risky — they can be deadly. In 2016, among teen drivers involved in fatal crashes, 10 percent were reported as distracted at the time of the crash.

In 2016, almost one-third (31%) of all teen drivers of passenger vehicles involved in fatal crashes were speeding at the time of the crash, and males were more likely to be involved in fatal speeding-related crashes than females.

Wearing a seat belt is one of the simplest ways for teens to stay safe in a vehicle. Yet too many teens aren’t buckling up. In fact, there were 569 passengers killed in passenger vehicles driven by teen drivers, and more than half (54%) of those passengers who died were NOT buckled up at the time of the fatal crash.

All teens are too young to legally buy, possess, or consume alcohol. However, nationally, in 2016, nearly one out of five teen drivers of passenger vehicles involved in a fatal crash had been drinking.

National Teen Driver Safety Week - October 21-27, 2018 This week and every week, parents should have conversations with their teens about the important rules they need to follow to stay safe behind the wheel of a passenger car, truck, or SUV. These rules address the greatest dangers for teen drivers: alcohol, inconsistent or no seat belt use, distracted and drowsy driving, speeding, and number of passengers.
