Sheriff’s Office increases presence as school starts back

Thursday morning, most Pike County schools opened their doors to greet students for the first day of classes.  Pike County Sheriff’s deputies were out in force with an increased presence both inside the schools and outside, making sure everyone arrived safely.  Mountain Top News was with deputies at Pike Central High School, which is one of the school zones that has the biggest problem with motorists not obeying reduced speed limits.  Deputies say they will continue to work the school traffic detail for the first couple of weeks as a reminder that school is back in session.
