Where did the summer go? With children heading back to school today, we at the Oldham County Sheriff's Office wanted to share these safety reminders with you. 1. Watch your speed in school zones! Be aware that school zone speed limits may vary in hours and speeds. Be sure to follow the posted limits. 2. Slow down in residential areas. Watch for children crossing the street and congregating near bus stops. 3. Do not pass a school bus that is stopped to load or unload children. Traffic in both directions on undivided highways must stop when students are entering or exiting a school bus (the red flashing lights and extended stop sign arms are your cue to stop). On a divided roadway, all traffic behind the school bus must stop. 4. Be alert! The area 10 feet around a school bus is where children are in the most danger of being hit. Children walking to and from their bus are usually very comfortable with their surroundings and more likely to take risks, ignore hazards, or fail to look both ways when crossing the street. 5. Always stop when directed to do so by a school patrol sign, school patrol officer, or designated crossing guard.

The Oldham County Sheriff’s Office is partnering with area churches hosting safety workshops. The Oldham County Sheriff’s Office in partnership with LaGrange Baptist Church will be hosting a safety and security seminar on March 17th. The workshop deals with how to enhance safety and security protocols, both visible and unseen, to keep everyone safe, while keeping the church mission at the forefront. At the end of the workshop, the goal is for members collectively to leave with a better understanding of how to be proactive and reactive, while dealing with a wide range of potential issues, working as a team and with law enforcement.

Yesterday at approximately 4:00pm The Oldham County Sheriff’s office recovered a lost drone in the Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve area. It appeared that the drone had been flown into a tree and had gotten lodged in the tree branches. Recent wind and storms seem to have blown the drone out of the tree. If you know of anyone in the Goshen/North Oldham area that may have lost a drone under these circumstances please have them call our office so that we may return the wayward drone back to its rightful owner. Contact our office at (502)222-9501 or via Facebook message.

On February 06th, 2018, the Oldham County Sheriff’s Office was again awarded with the KACP Certificate of Accreditation. The Sheriff's Office initially received this certification in 2009 and was one of only five Sheriff’s Offices in the state and only county law enforcement agency to achieve this honor. The Kentucky Association of Chiefs of Police Accreditation Program is intended to provide law enforcement agencies of the Commonwealth with an avenue for demonstrating that they meet commonly accepted professional standards for efficient and effective operations. Law Enforcement executives who choose to have their agencies accredited under this program have examined all aspects of their operations. They have made conscious decisions about policies and procedures that fit the law enforcement requirements of their jurisdictions and have implemented those policies and trained their employees in their use. Accreditation reflects that the agency was carefully measured against an established set of standards and has met or exceeded professionally accepted practices in law enforcement. Pictured is Oldham County Sheriff Steve Sparrow and Shaun Butler of the Kentucky Association of Chiefs of Police Accreditation Program.

United States Attorney General Jeff Sessions visited Louisville on Tuesday to discuss crime and drugs. The meeting, which included local and state law enforcement officers, came just hours before President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union speech. "On behalf of President Trump, I want to thank all of the law enforcement officers here today," Sessions said. Sessions spoke for about 20 minutes, primarily about the ongoing opioid crisis as well as violent crime. "During this time, our country has suffered the deadliest drug crisis in our history," he said. "More Americans are dying because of drugs than ever before. It's just an unacceptable trend. We cannot allow this to continue." Regarding a spike in violent crime in Louisville the past two years, Sessions pointed out the role drugs play. Sessions also praised Marshall County Sheriff Kevin Byars, who was in attendance, for his role in apprehending the suspect in a deadly Marshall County school shooting there last week. Attorney General Sessions spoke privately with Sheriff Steve Sparrow, along with a group of law enforcement professionals to include Sheriff Byars.
