Sheriff looks back on 2010, forward in 2011

January 6, 2011

BROOKVILLE — The Jefferson County Sheriff’s office recently concluded a busy year which saw the addition of TASERs to the weapons used by the deputies.

Sheriff Carl Gotwald Sr. said through grants, he was able to purchase TASERs for the deputies to have a more effective means of securing offenders by a less lethal option, “by helping to bring the deputies home safely to their families and friends and the offender into custody unharmed.”

TASERs for deputies have deterred hostility because offenders know the outcome.
