Rounds of heavy rain will begin to move into the area later tonight, leading to the increased potential for flooding. A Flood Watch is in effect for the entire area from now through Thursday and a Winter Storm Warning goes into effect tomorrow. As we head into Wednesday, temperatures will drop and transition our rain to sleet and eventually to snow. Most of the area could see several inches of snow and sleet before it's all said and done. Keep it locked right here for updates.
Many arresting agencies across the state are now using e-warrants to improve the efficiency of serving warrants.
The amended order instructs the Perry County Sheriffs Office to switch from e-warrants to paper warrants until officers are properly trained with the electronic warrant training.
E-warrants allow arresting agencies to search warrants statewide, while paper warrants limit that search to the county where the warrant was issued.
Chief Deputy Tony Eversole agrees that e-warrants are beneficial but he says there are many black holes in the system.
Eversole says their officers are trained but serving more than 1000 warrants per month isn't an easy feat.
