Crime Down In Coffee County

Coffee County Sheriff Steve Graves

With the help of the Department of Homeland Security, crime in Coffee and Franklin counties has gone down. According to the TBI, the total number of crimes committed in Coffee County fell seven percent since 2003, while property crimes are down 20 percent. Since then Coffee County has received several grants.
Coffee County Sheriff Steve Graves said that the grants help our officers to have the information they need at their fingertips. Thirty percent of that funding goes to radio equipment. For officers protecting and serving, communication is the key.
