A Multi-Jurisdiction Saturation Saturday by area law enforcement agencies has resulted in more than 20 arrests.
According to a release from both the Henderson Police Department and the Chester County Sheriff’s Department, the saturation took place June 29 and involved not only the two local agencies, but also participation by the Henderson County Sheriff’s Dept., Jackson Police Dept., and E-911 Communications Center.
“Officers and deputies were paired up and were assigned throughout the city and county looking for illegal drug use, persons with outstanding warrants and impaired drivers.
Chief of Police Gary Davidson and Sheriff Blair Weaver issued the following joint statement:
“It is both ours and our officers’ (and) deputies’ goal to ensure that Henderson and Chester County remains a great, safe city and county. Being proactive in searching for wanted individuals and those who chose to use or sell illegal drugs is our main objective.
“We would also like to thank the citizens for all the help and support they show for both departments, without their support and tips our officers/deputies could not do their job(s) as well as they do. We always want everyone to remember that if you see something out of the ordinary, drug sells or usage, please call the Henderson Police Department or the Chester County Sheriff’s Dept. Together we are committed to do all we can to make the community even better and safer than it already is.”
The saturation netted the following:
• Five – driving on revoked or suspended driver’s license.
• Eight – outstanding arrest warrants
• Four – simple possessions.
• Two – possession of Schedule 2 drugs
• One – possession of drug paraphernalia.
• One – Introduction of contraband into a penal facility
• Three – traffic citations
