JCSD Reports 2020 Total Incidents
The Jones County Sheriff's Department reports that a total of 25,967 incident numbers were generated in 2020 in the first year of Sheriff Joe Berlin's term in office. The total represents just shy of 71 incident numbers generated per day on average in 2020.
Sheriff Joe Berlin notes, "We had a very busy 2020 with 25,967 incident numbers generated representing a tremendous amount of work done by our deputies and investigators throughout the year. This number does not include the thousands upon thousands of phone calls, emails, text messages, and social media messages answered plus the numerous individuals who came into our offices daily to ask questions and obtain information."
Sheriff Berlin concludes, "We are proud to have put together a great group of deputies, investigators, corrections officers, and civilian employees who make it their daily mission to professionally serve the residents of and visitors to Jones County. We look forward to continuing to improve our law enforcement services and our service delivery in 2021. If you are not moving forward, then you are moving backwards. There's no "neutral" in our business. That's why our motto "Focused On Our Future" is something we remind ourselves of each and every day."
