Rankin Sheriff Plans Extra Patrols for Halloween
The Rankin County Sheriff’s Office will have additional deputies out Friday, Oct. 30th and Saturday, Oct. 31st for Halloween. We understand there is chance of rain Saturday night so a number of deputies will be patrolling subdivisions and county roads for those participating in Trick-or-Treating Friday night. Safety of our children is a number one concern so these deputies will be out with their blue lights on slowing vehicles down. We ask the public to report any reckless drivers or safety concerns immediately to the sheriff’s office at 601-825-1480. This week the sheriff’s office with the assistance of the MS Attorney General’s Office and the U.S. Marshals Service has conducted a compliance check on every sex offender living in the county. Residents who are concerned about sex offenders living in their area are asked to look at the MS Department of Public Safety Sex Offender Web Site.
Kingfish note: Nice to see Sheriff Bailey doing this. He takes that night very seriously as the Rankin County SO has deployed extra patrols, mobile and stationary, in neighborhoods. Brandon and some other suburban cities do this as well. Meanwhile, if you live in Fondren, get ready for the invasion of the buses.
