Flooding has caused I70 to close eastbound lanes between exit 9 and 12. All interstate traffic has been diverted to HWY. 24.  We plan extra patrols in that area to control the extra traffic. Lane closure is expected to last up to 7 days. Please plan your travel plans accordingly.


The Sherman County Sheriff’s Office offer their deepest sympathy, thoughts and prayers for the family and friends of the victim of a single car accident early this morning.   On September 3, 2013 at 12:56 am, Sherman County Sheriff and Deputies were dispatched to a single vehicle rollover on Highway 24 approximately 3/10 of a mile east of Road 14.  The driver was transported to Goodland Regional Medical Center by ambulance where the driver was pronounced deceased.  The evidence indicates the vehicle was traveling east bound on Highway 24, lost control, and rolled several times.   Out of respect for the family, we are not releasing the name.

***For immediate release**** Sherman County, Goodland Area
Tonight several calls have come in to Sherman County Dispatch that a white female in a gray car with a foreign accent is trying to abduct children. Our deputy's have made contact with the female, they are reporting that the female is trying to sell children's books and has a sales pitch that includes asking questions about the children in the home to determine what books should be sold. This has alarmed some residents however no criminal activity has been discovered. This female has applied for a lawful permit to peddle in the City of Goodland and is already working her way around the county. At this time we have no reason to believe that the accusations about child abduction are accurate. However we at the Sherman County Sheriffs Office remind everyone to ALWAYS make the safety of our children a top priority.
