On September 4, 2022 this little guy showed up in the area of Logan Rd and Herschell then on Youngberg between Grass Valley Rd and Van Diest.

He was fed and watered while Deputies tried to locate his owner.

On September 5, 2022 his owner was located and contacted. She requested some time to check her fence. She was relieved to know he was safe and healthy.

On September 6, 2022, he was returned to his owner in a happy reunion for both!

Thank you to the community members that assisted in locating his owner!

On August 30th, 2022, The Pershing County Sheriffs Office responded to the Pit Taylor area of Pershing County, Nevada, to assist civilians stuck in a remote part of our county during the evening hours. Deputies were able to get their vehicle unstuck and return them to safety.

Last night the Pershing County Sheriff’s Office received the report of an active land fire just West of the 107 overpass of Interstate 80.

Because of high winds the fire quickly spread within minutes towards a power station, power lines, and a cell tower.

Thankfully with the quick response from our local Fire Department, BLM Fire Department, Police Department, and Sheriffs Office, the fire was subsequently extinguished.

On October 26, 2021, at approximately 8:30 am The Pershing County Sheriff’s Office received the report of a truck driver who’s semi became stuck in the mud near the Coal Canyon Road/Stillwater Road area of Pershing County Nevada.

This came after a major storm hit the Pacific Northwest over the weekend which brought constant rain fall causing unsafe road conditions, washouts and mud.

The driver of the semi had already spent the night in the remote area, had no more diesel and no longer had power to charge his cell phone to call for help.

Deputy Thornhill of the Pershing County Sheriff’s Office was able to subsequently locate the driver and bring him out of the elements.

This incident is a good reminder to all residents and visitors who come to Pershing County, Nevada, that weather conditions change at a moment's notice and to always stay prepared.

Plan ahead by being aware of your surroundings and pay attention to the weather/road conditions.

At the end of the day, we are just glad everyone made it home safe!

The police dog involved in yesterday’s (OIS) Officer Involved Shooting is alive, well and will make a full recovery! 🐕

Thank you all for the support!

Pershing County Sheriffs Office Official Statement:

A person is dead after stabbing a police dog and resisting arrest on Wednesday June 17, 2020.

The deceased is a male motorist who’s name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.

Pershing County deputies went to the Humboldt Sink area about 12 miles west of Lovelock and about 73 miles east of Reno on a report of a motorist who needed help. The deputies ran a warrants check on the motorist and found there was an warrant for his arrest.

The motorist resisted arrest and an attempt to use a TASER was unsuccessful.

The motorist got into his early model Winnebago and refused to get out and drove away, colliding with a patrol vehicle head, forcing it off the road. The sheriff’s office pursued and the Winnebago struck patrol vehicles at least two more times.

After a short chase, they got the Winnebago to stop. The motorist refused to exit his vehicle and a police dog was deployed and the motorist got out of the Winnebago and began stabbing the dog in the neck with a large knife.

Having exhausted all other options, a Pershing County Deputy discharged his service firearm at the motorist striking him in the upper torso.

The motorist was taken by ambulance to Pershing General Hospital and died from a gunshot wound.

The police dog involved will make a full recovery.

Hi, My name is Harout & unfortunately I was a guest of Sheriff Allen at the Pershing County Sheriffs Office for a little longer than a year. I am here to tell you all about my experience because I feel the need to share. As far as Sheriff Allen, he was a gracious host & did his absolute best to maintain a fair environment for his unfortunate guests at the jail. I am forever grateful to him & most of his staff. I am here to talk about exactly that.. during my time there I had several life changing experiences, good & bad..

To Undersheriff Bjerke: Thank you for all the talks we had, thank you for teaching me there is a road to rehabilitation & giving me hope! I enjoyed my time with you so much ironically in jail. Thank you for treating me like a human!

To Undersheriff Blondheim: You are such a badass, it was so cool getting to know you the little bit I did. You are such an impressive person & Pershing County is lucky to have you as an undersheriff.

To Sergeant Stephens: Thank you for all that you have taught me, thank you for upholding the dignity of Pershing County Sheriffs Office. We went from disliking each other to you being someone I have the utmost respect for. Thank you for treating me like a human. I am forever grateful to have met you.

To Sergeant Carmichael: There were days you were really cool & treated me like a human being & other days not so much. I really wish you would reevaluate how you treat people around you, as not just inmates but there was several officers who weren’t too fond of you. I can see there is a good person behind all that as***le persona. Thank you for also being kind at times to me.

To Deputy Abernathy: Thank you for so much, you saved me life that one time & I am forever indebted to you. You also were the perfect cop, so well trained, so good at your job, you are quite an impressive person. Thank you for “trying” to teach me new things & all that you dealt with. You deserve everything & then some. I am so grateful to have met a man like you. Thank you for being a true professional.

To Deputy Paredes: Thank you for making my time there a little bit easier & your professionalism & for treating me like a human at the end of the day. You are a great asset to the Pershing County Sheriffs Office. Thank you for the laughs & the discipline I deserved at times & teaching me so much about “labor work” haha. Also thank you for saving my life as well!

To Deputy Bohan: I personally don’t know how I feel about you. There were very few times your nice side actually showed. You come off as an evil, mean & conniving person. You jumped through ropes to make everyone at PCSO miserable & you had no concept of decent humanity. Towards the end of my stay, I started to be slightly fond of you but it’s really hard to forget how you treated me & others. You went out of your way to make peoples lives miserable & that speaks volumes of your character.

To Deputy Thornhill: Thank you Thornhill for being kind to me & always letting me play with Veno. I would always get happy when I saw you coming in because like some of the other deputies, you treated me like a human being at the end of the day. I have a lot of respect for you.

To Deputy Poffenroth: Thanks for treating me like a human & sympathizing with my situation. You are a respectable deputy & I have utmost respect for you, even when you’d be a d*** sometimes, I really enjoyed our talks & appreciate all your advice.

To Deputy Nicholson: You are a complete a-hole, I don’t understand how you wake up everyday & be as miserable as you are. I really have nothing good to say about you.

To (no longer) Deputy Fles: You are a disgrace, You are a miserable disgusting person, I am glad people saw through you.

To Dispatcher Glen: Glen you are a gem, I am so thankful for meeting you! Its one of the few takeaways from such a difficult place that I will always hold on to. I have the utmost respect for you & your steez man! Thank you for teaching me so much & all the classical movies. My favorite times were with you & Sergeant Stephens!

To The Lovely Miss Leslie: How I cherished meeting you! You are one of the loveliest people I had the honor of knowing. Thank you for treating me kindly, your heart is made of pure gold!

To Dispatcher Jerry: Jerry you were fun but you were always an a-hole as well. I appreciated you many times but I also didn’t appreciate the way you’d speak & treat people. I wish for you to stop focusing on being negative & try to be a pleasant person to be around.

To Rocio & Sherri: You two are also some of the loveliest ladies ive had the pleasure of knowing. Thank you for the laughs & good times in such a difficult place. Appreciate you two!

Last but certainly not least..

To My Fella Bruce Medeiros: You are such an admirable person, I am so honored to know you. Thank you for choosing me to help even when you knew I couldn’t do much. Thank you for teaching me all you have & you’ve taught me a lot! Thank you for treating my kindly & helping with my rehabilitation. You have been so impactful on my time there.
