Tales from the Rural Patrol

*Publisher’s Note: For decades, Illinois Valley News has published our unique version of the log entries from Josephine County Sheriff’s Office. Tales from the Rural Patrol kept the community informed and doled out public floggings via satire. Technology has changed the process. Log entries with the new JCSO reporting system are now limited to citations and arrests.
The I.V. News has spoken to Sheriff Daniel and he is working to get the information we have become accustomed to. Stay tuned! ~djm
