Do I need documents to show a Deputy that I'm an essential employee if I'm stopped?

No. Sheriff Tolson has been an advocate for weeks for people to stay home if possible during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The York County Sheriff’s Office will not have roadblocks, traffic checkpoints, or other mass enforcement measures.

However, deputies will respond to all calls of rule violations and handle each call with the discretion the law entails.

If pockets of the public flagrantly disregard the governor’s order, our deputies will take any and all appropriate action. 

If there has ever been a time for the public to heed "stay at home", it is now.  Please limit your travel.  Go out only when necessary.
