DeWitt County Sheriff Mike Walker says activity in his office has almost been cut in half since the shelter from home decree was announced in mid-March.


Sheriff Mike Walker on the WHOW Morning Show Thursday told Regional Radio News, calls for service, traffic stops and paper services have all been substantially reduced as everyone is staying in. The Sheriff gives credit to residence for following the guidelines of the Governor, he's seen very minimal traffic, other than the peak travel times.



According to Sheriff Walker, there are many of his deputies ready to return to their routine of regular interaction with the public through in-person responses and traffic stops.



While calls for domestic violence incidents have not increased locally, in terms of calls to the Sheriff, Sheriff Walker is concerned those could still increase at some point, especially if people continue to be asked to stay in when the weather gets nice.
