September 2015

The Burning Man is over and in the books for this year. The event went better then expected. 

The Sheriff’s Office made our presence known. Deputies enforced the laws fairly and consistently. No exceptions were made that wouldn’t fall within the normal course of our duties.

The Sheriff’s Office and BLM integrated very nicely and created a lot of positive relationships.

While there were areas of improvement discussed for next year, they themselves are minor changes to make the operations smoother.
