Changes to arrest reports

The timing of the release of arrest reports by the Red River Sheriff’s Office is changing.  Beginning this week, the reports will be released on Friday.

Warden Joey Wiggins told the Journal Friday will be the new date.  He said persons booked since the last report will be included up until the time of the release of the new report.  Wiggins did not have a new release time for the reports.

As in the past, the Journal will publish the arrest reports to social media as soon as possible after they are released.  And the reports will be included in the next edition of the Journal.

State law now prohibits the publication of many “booking photos” of individuals arrested.  There are certain exceptions.  Since the new law was signed by the Governor, Red River has not released any pictures of persons arrested.
