(9-16-22) The Mercer County Sheriff’s Office will have additional deputies assigned to work targeted areas during the upcoming homecoming dances in our area. The additional deputies will be doing extra patrol on the weekends of these dances focusing on impaired driving, unsafe driving, and the overall safety of the teens of Mercer County attending these dances.

As a reminder, the goal is not to ruin anyone’s fun, but rather to keep the public safe. Our office is trying to make the deputies more visible and hopefully deter unsafe driving. Sheriff Grey and the entire staff of the Sheriff’s Office would like to remind all motorists – never text and drive, always wear your seat belt, and follow all laws/posted speed limits.
