Captain Randy Linkous
Darke County Sheriff's personnel are
professionally trained in traffic control. Much of the traffic
control in our state is done by the Sheriff. Traffic control
covers anything from enforcement of traffic laws to directing
traffic around special events and construction projects.
Due to Ohio's rural nature, many communities
cannot afford their own police forces. Many of Ohio's communities
have law enforcement contracts with the county Sheriff. The
Sheriff's Office also provides law enforcement services, security,
and crowd control for special events such as county fairs,
concerts and other events.
