Spencer County Sheriff Buddy Stump addressed a crowded room at the Spencer County Public Library as Elk Creek residents sought answers and information about a recent rash of thefts in their neighborhoods. Stump said even though his deputies aren’t patrolling 24/7, they will respond at any hour.
Stump: “We will respond”


Spencer County Sheriff Buddy Stump addressed a crowd of around 60 mostly Elk Creek residents last Tuesday night at the Public Library, many of whom had questions about patrols and coverage in the wake of a recent spree of burglaries in their neighborhoods. Stump tried to alleviate concerns about a lack of coverage, and said he’s working to restore 24/7 patrols by the end of the year.

However, he said lack of constant patrolling does not mean he or his deputies are not available.
