Twenty-two of the calls to the Stephens County Sheriff’s Office for service during the last two weeks were for loose cattle. That is highly disproportionate compared to normal. Although they are not complex investigations they often take lots of time to respond to and then solve. If you own cattle or land, the sheriff asks that you do your part to maintain fences.

Calls for service include but are not limited to: 911 calls, non-emergency calls, registering sex offenders, traffic accidents/hazards, transporting prisoners and juveniles in and out of the county, mental hospital transports, court security, and some types of proactive calls.
