Sheriff Craig Peoples was sworn in as the 89th President of the Kentucky Sheriff's Association by Kentucky Supreme Court Justice Michelle Keller at their annual conference in Bowling Green.
Sheriff Peoples term of service will begin in January and will preside over association meetings, chair committees, meet and work with legislators over issues that affect law enforcement across the Commonwealth and issues specific to the Office of Sheriff.
The Pendleton County Sheriffs Office
has added a new vehicle to its fleet. In September 2013 the Sheriffs Office obtained a surplus military vehicle (Humvee) through the Department of Defense Reutilization Program, at no cost to the Sheriffs Office.
The vehicle was received in its original camo green paint. Over the last ten months the late Evan Peoples, Bradford Peoples, and Sheriff Peoples have put a tremendous amount of man hours into the project along with the employees of Midwest Automotive to get the vehicle into its final status.
The vehicle has been totally sanded and repainted a gloss black with gold decals provided by Jake Peoples with Peoples Trophies and Awards.
The humvee will be a fully upfitted Sheriffs vehicle which will be used at festivals, fairs, parades, car shows, and school programs, to promote public service announcements, safety programs for kids as well as use as a response vehicle for natural disasters, warrant service, and harsh winters by the Sheriffs Office.
Sheriff Peoples would also like to thank Rumpke of Kentucky and Fab n Weld of Butler for their contributions to the project. It has been a long time in coming to completion and I am glad to have seen it through.

KACP Second Five-year Accreditation Achieved!
The Pendleton County Sheriff's Office received their second five year accreditation certificate from the Kentucky Association of Chiefs of Police on July 31, 2013 at their annual conference in Lexington. The KACP's Accreditation Program is intended to provide law enforcement agencies of the Commonwealth an avenue for demonstrating that they meet commonly accepted professional standards for efficient and effective operations. Law Enforcement Executives who choose to have their agencies accredited under this program have examined all aspects of their operations. They have made conscious decisions about policies and procedures that fit the law enforcement requirements of their jurisdictions and have implemented those polices and trained their employees in there use.
Some of those policies include the office evidence room that meets the requirements and is secured, having a use of force policy, mandatory seat belt and bullet proof vest wear among many other standards and policies. In 2008, the Pendleton County Sheriff's Office was the fourth Sheriff's Office in the Commonwealth to become accredited. At this time there only 10 Sheriff's Offices throughout the Commonwealth who have or are achieving this goal. There are many City and County Police departments that are accredited. By being accredited the county gets a refund on its liability insurance and the deputies and hopefully the community can feel a sense of pride and value with our office, Pendleton County Sheriff Craig Peoples.
