Holmes County Sheriffs Office

Lifting up the family, brothers and sisters of the Clermont County Sheriff’s.As we wake up this morning, and with heavy hearts, we have been informed that the Clermont County Sheriff's Office (Ohio), has lost one of their own in a shooting overnight. We do not know the name of the deputy yet as this is an ongoing investigation. The deputy was shot and killed during a SWAT standoff last night in Pierce Township and another deputy was injured. Our main priority as a law enforcement officer is to make it back home to our family at the end of every shift. We cannot fathom the pain and heartache that the family is suffering. We ask that you keep the deputy's family and fellow officers in your thoughts and prayers. As soon as we receive further information and are able to, we will update this post. Godspeed brother. We will take it from here. ...

Super Bowl LIII

This Super Bowl Season, Remember:
Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk

As Super Bowl LIII quickly approaches, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is teaming up with the Holmes County Sheriffs Office to remind football fans that designated drivers are the best defense against the dangers of drunk driving.

Super Bowl is a festive night in homes and bars across America, but if your night involves alcohol, plan for a sober ride home. We want to remind everyone that Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk.

Deputies will be cracking down on impaired drivers on Super Bowl Sunday. Help others make good choices by reminding them Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk. If you host a Super Bowl party, make sure your guests have a safe and sober way home, and do not serve alcohol to anyone under 21 years of age.

Before you head out, make a game plan that includes a sober driver—someone who will not drink at all, and who will safely bring you home!!!
