NEWS FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE



Sheriff concerned over weekend shootings


Butler County Sheriff Richard K. Jones is concerned about a trio of weekend shootings that occurred in Butler County and the strain that such cases put on Law Enforcement Agencies who have already or who may be facing layoffs of officers.

“We realize that Butler County is not immune from the same fiscal woes that Cincinnati and Hamilton County have faced. However, it’s disturbing to read about a shooting in Fairfield during a robbery attempt, a SWAT team callout in Hamilton after an alleged robbery where a man was shot in the head and in Wayne Township where a man was shot during what appears to be an argument and is in critical condition at a local hospital. – all in the SAME weekend!”

“Whenever a situation as severe as a shooting takes place, it takes many law enforcement resources to respond, investigate and hopefully criminally charge the suspect(s) responsible.”

“Having three shootings in this County in one weekend does concern me, it concerns me not only for the victims but for the citizens of the County who may have to depend on a depleted Law Enforcement Agency for help – when it’s needed most. I urge all those Council Members, Township Trustees, Commissioners and other elected officials to use extreme discretion when considering the safety of those Citizens we are all sworn to protect.”
