Deputy's Log Jan. 12-18


January 29, 2020

Lewis and Clark County 911 Center received thirty-four calls for service during the weeks of Jan. 12 through Jan. 25, 2020. Three of those calls were a traffic stop and two civil services performed by deputies in the Lincoln area.

Two call for service generated a case report in the last two weeks:

One call for service generated a case report last week: In the area of Highway 200 and Chevrolet Drive, a Deputy conducted a traffic stop Saturday, Jan. 18 at around 2100 hours. The driver was stopped for careless driving but after making contact, the deputy suspected driving under the influence of alcohol. The driver was later arrested for DUI and transported to the Detention Center.

On Sunday, Jan. 19 at around 4 a.m., deputies were dispatched to the 6000 block of East Highway 200 for the report of a driver parked in the complainant's driveway with the vehicle running and music blaring. Deputies conducted a welfare check on the driver who was suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol. The driver was later arrested for DUI and transported to the Detention Center.

Other calls for service in the Lincoln area the last two weeks were one 911 hang-up, two agency assists, five non-injury crashes, one attempt to locate, one search and rescue call, two administrative call, three citizen assists, one fish and game call, two suspicious circumstances, one privacy in communications and two welfare checks completed. Lincoln Ambulance responded to six calls for service and Lincoln Fire responded to one. 

In reference to the search and rescue call for service last week. I received a call from a family member of lost snowmobilers around Keep Cool Lake. In the end, SAR was able to find and bring home the stranded snowmobilers safe and sound. Please remember to bring supplies necessary to survive in case you are lost, stuck or stranded in an unfamiliar location into the night. Such supplies include fire starter, blanket, extra fuel, flash lights, cell/sat phone, water, and food. Another great idea is to inform someone you're not going with where you start and end, where you will be riding around, and what time you leave and should return. Making sure they know your sled make, model, and color is also important.
