Today, Franklin County Sheriff Bill Overton urged residents to wear their seat belts. "In 2016, The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimated that nearly 15,000 lives were saved in our nation by using seat belts. Many in our county are already doing this, but some are not. I am encouraging all to wear your seat belts, it is a proven life saver and, in many cases, reduces the risk of more serious injury. Drive responsibly and arrive home safe to your family each day."

Thursday, June 7th, Sheriff Bill Overton warned Franklin County residents of a new scam attempt our office is hearing about. Scammers are calling and pretending to be from Publisher's Clearing House, claiming you have won millions of dollars. Then, you are asked to purchase redeemable cards. The perpetrators are wanting these cards to be as high as $1,500.00. You are given a number to call where, supposedly, you will be told where to mail these money cards. Be wise, don't be the next victim of scammers! On this website, see "View All Flyers Here". Scroll down to "Scammers" and see more information about this type crime..
