Sheriff’s deputies have been staffing security checkpoints to limit
public access to flooded areas, according to a press release from the sheriff’s
office. Deputies have been making frequent patrols of flooded areas.
Guard members will free deputies from patrolling the checkpoints
and reduce deputies’ overtime, Spoden told the Gazette this morning.
Unarmed Guard members will work under the sheriff’s authority.
Sworn sheriff’s personnel will continue to take necessary enforcement action,
according to the press release.
