ATTENTION

Virginia's law enforcement will be out in full force during the national Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over mobilization, which runs from August 15 to September 3, 2018. Impaired driving prevention is the focus of the mobilization, which is held in advance of and includes the Labor Day holiday, one of the busiest travel weekends of the year.

It's 2018 and there are many other options available to you if you find yourself in a position where you should not drive. There are families out there trying to enjoy the last summer holiday.....don't make it their last.

DRINKING AND DRIVING IS A CHOICE, AND IT IS A CHOICE THAT SHOULD NOT BE MADE.

Sheriff Smith introduced 29 News Reporter/ Anchor Henry Graff and Greene County Sheriff's Office Victim Witness Director Kenlyn Snow this morning at the monthly TRIAD meeting.

Henry Graff spoke on journalism, the media process and the avenues for informing media and the public about community events.

Kenlyn Snow talked about cell phone disposal, her victim witness program and reviewed current phone scams and tips on how to avoid being a victim.
