Daggett County Sheriff Modifying Non-Emergency Calls Process
By Kristin Forbis, Mar 26, 2020
With the announcement that there is a confirmed case of COVID-19 in neighboring Wyoming’s Sweetwater County, the Daggett County Sheriff’s Office announced on Wednesday that Sheriff Erik Bailey has modified how deputies will respond to non-emergency calls. The procedure will be as follows: Effective immediately and until further notice, those who contact Central Dispatch at 435-789-4222 or the sheriff’s office with a non-emergency call for service will initially receive a phone call from a Daggett County sheriff’s deputy. An in-person follow-up visit will take place if the deputy determines it is necessary. “This process is being put in place to protect our deputies and the public from possible exposure to COVID-19 and to help prevent the spread of the virus,” shares Sheriff Bailey. Normal response will continue for emergency calls but please only call 9-1-1 for true emergencies.
