Weekly Update Article October 16, 2023

From October 8-15, Sheriff’s Deputies responded to 660 calls for service/events.  Higher call volumes occurred in the following areas:  Traffic stops-100, 911 Abandoned/Unknown-44, Suspicious Subject/Situation/Vehicle-40, Traffic Violations-40, Alarms-38, Assist Citizen/Motorist Assist-35, Check Well-Beings-32, Follow-Up of any kind-27, Car/Deer Accidents-25, Traffic Hazards-19, Property Damage Crashes-17, Prisoner Transports-17, Shoplifting Complaints-14, Civil Complaints-14, Larcenies-12, and Personal Injury Crashes-12.

The month of October is a busy one for national recognitions.  Domestic Violence Awareness Month is one of them I didn’t want to overlook.  Since January 1, 2023, the Eaton County Sheriff’s Office has responded to 497 domestic dispute calls for service.  Domestic disputes are not just between husbands and wives, but are also between parents and their kids, boyfriends and girlfriends, grandkids and grandparents, etc.   It’s not just punches and black eyes -- it’s yelling, humiliation, stalking, manipulation, coercion, threats and isolation. It’s stealing a paycheck, keeping tabs online, non-stop texting, constant use the silent treatment, or calling someone stupid so often they believe it.

If you know someone, or maybe are a victim yourself, there are many national and local resources dedicated to offering assistance, services, or maybe you just need someone to listen. Here are just a few –

  • National Domestic Violence Hotline - www.ndvh.org, phone:   800-799-(SAFE) 7233
