Note: The ages of all individuals are now redacted from the arrest report, as well as the names of those charged with a felony. This new policy from the Campbell County Sheriff's Office (S.O.) was at the direction of the County Attorney’s Office. County 17 has worked with the courts to obtain publicly available information on those individuals being arraigned in order to provide information which was previously received from the S.O. County 17 does not guarantee this to be a full or complete list given the multiple sources needed to compile the information.
