Hughes County Sheriff's Office News

Due to recent events across the country and the tragic losses suffered by several families in the past week Sheriff Maxwell believed this post is necessary. Oklahoma Statute 47-11-705 states: “A. The driver of a vehicle meeting or overtaking a school bus that is stopped to take on or discharge school children, and on which the red loading signals are in operation, is to stop the vehicle before it reaches the school bus and not proceed until the loading signals are deactivated and then proceed past such school bus at a speed which is reasonable and with due caution for the safety of such school children and other occupants. Any person convicted of violating the provisions of this subsection shall be punished by a fine of not less than One Hundred Dollars ($100.00).” Also you should be aware that upon first conviction you will loose your license for 1 year. This is a mandatory revocation by the Department of Public Safety. The Hughes County Sheriffs Office will be out in unmarked vehicles enforcing this law. We have always had a zero tolerance policy on this and will continue to do so. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone that has been affected by these tragedies.

Some pretty interesting and scary characters appeared on the courthouse lawn Wednesday afternoon! These are the winners of the costume contest hosted by the Hughes County Deputies Association! Thanks for braving the weather and coming out to celebrate with us. Congratulations to the winners!!

Update: Phones are back up working. The number below is our dispatch and should be used unless you need to speak to someone in jail or the office. Phones out at the sheriff's office. If you need a deputy, please call Central Dispatch at 405-379-6627.

School Resource Deputy David Cook and retired K-9 Dante, conducted a K-9 demonstration for students at Ethel Reed Elementary and Calvin School last week during Red Ribbon Week. The Red Ribbon Week demonstrations were organized by the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics.

On this Halloween Eve Sheriff Maxwell has a few tips and “tricks” for the kids! * Plus a little jab to our firefighter brothers and sisters! 😂 Refrain from using realistic looking toy guns and knives Use only flame-resistant costumes Plan the Trick-or-Treat route - make sure adults know where children are going. A parent or responsible adult should accompany young children as they make their way around the neighborhood. Make sure Trick-or Treaters can see, and be seen. Give them a flashlight to light their way. Add reflective tape to costumes and Trick-or-Treat bags. Have everyone wear light-colored clothing to be seen. Instead of masks which can cover the eyes and make it hard to see, use face paint instead. Be cautious around animals, especially dogs. Visit only the homes that have a porch light on. Accept treats at the door – never go inside. Walk only on the sidewalks, not in the street. If no sidewalk is available, walk at the edge of the roadway, facing traffic. Look both ways before crossing the street, and cross only at the corner. Don’t cut across yards or use alleys. Don’t cross between parked cars. Make sure a grown-up checks the goodies before eating. (Make sure to remove loose candy, open packages and choking hazards. Discard any items with brand names that you are not familiar with. Make sure you stop by the Sheriffs Office for those treats and to show off your costumes for Sheriff Maxwell and her deputies! And as always have a safe and happy Halloween!!

UPDATE: DEPUTIES HAVE MADE CONTACT WITH ARMED SUBJECT AND DETERMINED HE IS NOT A THREAT. LOCKDOWN AT MOSS LIFTED. Moss School has been placed on lockdown because a man with a handgun was spotted by a construction crew near Moss school road. Deputies and OHP are on scene and there is no direct threat at the school. Calvin school was on lockdown earlier for a possible mountain lion spotting near the school. State game wardens responded to that call and found no threat. I will update as I receive more info.

Hughes County Deputies attended the annual EnLink Midstream (formerly Devon) plant and pipeline emergency response meeting at Camp WOW on October 19th. They reviewed the emergency response plan and had a discussion/tabletop drill over the emergency response and how we can interface with Enlink Midstream in case of an emergency. Deputy Kendra Goodwin brought home a pretty sweet ice chest from the door prize drawing. Thank you for inviting our department, as always, it was a pleasure.
