The following is an open letter, written by Edmonson County Sheriff Shane Doyle. The sheriff has asked us to publish this letter on behalf of the entire Edmonson County Sheriff's Office.
To the Citizens of Edmonson County,
The past week, our office was honored to host a camera and production crew from the hit show "Live PD", which airs on Friday and Saturday nights from 8pm-11pm central time. I can say that although I was apprehensive at first about being followed by a crew of cameramen and producers, they couldn't have been more professional, and were absolutely wonderful people.
I want to thank our citizens for their patience during the past weekend, as we chose to hold three separate traffic safety checkpoints targeting impaired drivers. Conducting these checkpoints and the time spent with the crew resulted in five arrests, confiscation of an illegal gun, the removal of several grams of methamphetamine, marijuana, and pills of from our roads. We also stopped multiple intoxicated drivers and made arrests stemming from outstanding warrants.
We also wish to thank A&E for covering the costs of overtime incurred, which prevented any additional costs to the county.
My intentions in working with Live PD was to show the world that we have true professionals who do a wonderful job protecting and serving our county, while also letting folks know what type of fantastic citizens that we have here in Edmonson County. I'm proud of my county and what we stand for, and I'm proud of my department and the job they do.
My hope is that you feel the same way. May God bless our county and our emergency workers.
Shane A. Doyle
Edmonson County Sheriff

Know what. Y'all need to get a life. You have no idea the lives of these people you are destroying moreso. No one breaks the law if they are happy and in a good place. You are. They are not. Do not take pride in what you do.

"No one breaks the law if they are happy and in a good place." Jen you need some serious therapy, or maybe a new church. The THC isn't doing you any good either. I have always wondered if you could tell someone was on something or not by reading their written words--I am convinced that you can. The world has too many Heath Ledger's, Janis Joplin's, and Whitney Houstons. When are we going to learn as a people that happiness cannot be found in a bottle of pills or a "joint", or good ol' Jack Daniels. Life is what you choose to make it -- no one else is responsible for that but yourself. I wish a better life for you.

Well, Jen...next time you're in trouble, you're probably not going to call someone who's not in a "happy and in a good place," you're going to call the cops. I hope they come in spite of your ridiculous comment.

Thank you so much for all of your hard work. I was proud of the way our county was represented. Know that so many support your department and the job you are doing to let people know that our county won't turn their heads when it comes to illegal substances.
