Sheriff Pope’s Message of the Week: December 1st, 2023

The Law Enforcement community lost two more heroes this week. Two Nevada State Police Troopers were senselessly killed in the line of duty by a DUI driver. The DUI driver fled the scene after the accident.

From LVMPD Undersheriff Andrew Walsh:

“Through investigative measures, we were able to identify the suspect as 46-year-old Jemarcus Williams. He was arrested and booked into the Clark County Detention Center for the following charges:
• Reckless driving resulting in death (2 Counts)
• Driving under the influence resulting in death (2 Counts)

• Duty to stop at the scene of an accident involving death (2 Counts)”

The entirety of the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office sends their prayers and thoughts to the law enforcement family and families the fallen Troopers.

The fallen Troopers’ handcuffs were used to arrest the suspect, a part of them was present in the apprehension of their killer.

DUI Drivers literally put every other vehicle in life threatening danger on our roadways. The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office is committed to removing DUI drivers from our roadways.

The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office asked the community for its assistance last night identifying a male suspect who attempted to pass a counterfeit $100 bill at two Dayton locations. The post served its purpose and that male suspect was identified. Charges are being filed against that suspect with the District Attorney’s Office. The suspect was identified within minutes of the post, I want to thank our community for the assistance!

Next week the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office will meet with the Lyon County School District to discuss the effects that our joint, zero tolerance policy is having on the Schools. An update on that policy will discussed in length next week.

Please keep the Christmas spirit in mind as we enter the holiday season. The spirit of generosity, kindness, and charity toward others is enforced by no one other than ourselves.
