Linn County Sheriff Donates Computer Monitors to Calapooia Middle School (Photo) - 09/13/18

Linn County Sheriff Jim Yon reports today, the Sheriff’s Office donated ten computer monitors to the Calapooia Middle School in Albany.  As computers were upgraded at the Linn County Sheriff’s Office, those monitors that were replaced, were donated.  Patrol Captain Kevin Guilford with the assistance of Deputy Travis Boshart and Deputy Chandler Bolton delivered the monitors to Principal Tristian Heisley.  The school staff was excited to receive the donation as the monitors in the school computer lab were old and outdated. 

Sheriff Yon was happy his Office could help the school and hopes to continue offering help to more schools across the County in the future. Sheriff Yon said, “It is a privilege to serve the Citizens of Linn County in many ways.”

Sheriff Jim Yon Announces DUII Enforcement this Labor Day Weekend - 08/30/18

Linn County Sheriff Jim Yon wants to remind people to drink responsibly this Labor Day Weekend.  As summer comes to an end many will be closing out the summer with one last get-together, trip to the lake, drive around the County or barbecue.  This will also be one of the last weekends for motorcyclists to enjoy the last of the clear, dry roadways.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), although motorcycles only account for about 3% of registered vehicles on the roadway, they are overrepresented in fatal crashes, especially involving alcohol.  Please drive careful this weekend as the weather will be nice and the roads will be full of vehicles.  Take extra time getting to your destination.    

This weekend, the Linn County Sheriff’s Office will bring in extra deputies for DUII enforcement.  Although deputies will be looking for all impaired drivers, there will be extra emphasis on impaired motorcyclists.

The Linn County Sheriff’s Office wishes you a safe and fun Labor Day weekend.
