Lincoln County Sheriff Curtis Landers spoke about Governor Kate Brown’s Executive Order in a video Friday, warning enforcement actions would be taken on those in violation of the order.

“Law enforcement does not make the laws, and like all laws, some people agree with them and others don’t. However, these are in place to keep you safe and we will enforce the order to ensure your safety,” Landers said.

Landers said deputies would be issuing citations to people congregating at popular closed off destinations. Deputies will be monitoring popular areas and taking enforcement actions.

Landers said violation of the Governor’s order is a Class C misdemeanor that carries a $1,000 fine and could ultimately land violators in jail.

  1. Thank you Sheriff Landers, for keeping those of us who want to stay healthy safe from those who care more for their “freedom.”

  2. Vicki Norton: Those of us who care more for our freedom than a threat that we might catch a virus that has been proven to be 98% recoverable from have a suggestion for you, those who would rather cower in their homes and follow the Gestapo rules of State. Don’t go to the beach! Stay at home so that us evil spreaders of the disease can’t harm you.

    What ever happened to innocent until proven guilty or in the case of Corona Virus, presumed clear until proven otherwise. Ruining the lives of small business people the the name of “safety” is a travesty. The Governors stay at home order expired because she didn’t get the proper approval of the State legislators. And last, The Sheriff is in violation of his oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States by enforcing the Governor’s now illegal order.

  3. “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

    ― Benjamin Franklin

  4. All box stores are open, have more fear of catching this virus in these stores.
    But can’t go on beach and walk with social distancing. Can’t launch boat but boats parked at marinas have no problem. Plus they have for six weeks not enforced any of the traffic coming into county, but now they are going to enforce them.
    The state has no legal right to block travel or commerce.
    Like said before box stores are all open but small businesses are closed. Not fair by anyway you look at it! Would rather go in a small business than a box store where I have higher chance of being exposed.
    When are people going to wake up!

  5. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

  6. I would really like for all you people who don’t believe this is serious, deadly & is a joke or any of the Republican verbagae you are all chomping at the bit on-Please pick a place, all of you meet & gather there, wallowing, whine, do whatever it is you think you need to do & we’ll see who is standing in a couple of weeks. Guess what- there is life beyond Fox News & the stupidity what is thrown up every day. Please take a look around the world or hell, even another city & see the death rate. Don’t believe- go there & show them how you’d rather be free than safe. Good luck.

  7. The LCPD will have to lay off some employees if the casino does not reopen. Since half the crime in LC is linked to people from the casino.

  8. Have noticed more traffic on 101 but not sure where these large groups of people are hanging out that he is talking about.
    Seems everyone is following the rules.

  9. First thing the whining is about following the constitution the sheriff took an oath of office to protect and serve and follow the constitution he also has laws that cover unlawful orders when a law or order is not lawful he is to reject it.
    You will se after all the law suits go through the court system you and you rights are no more important than mine
    With the way you and the sheriff think . If 200 people are in a store and three of them steal something the sheriff should just lock them all up because someone else in the group might someday steal also
    If you want to be a sheep and just follow along that is fine but I have a right choose for myself don’t need the governments help

  10. I wish there was a law against poverty and being forced to lose one’s job, business and possibly home. Can we all agree that those are health risks as well?

  11. Well guess we have solved the crime problem. Just don’t let people do anything. Stay in your homes and if we see you on the street or beach we’ll arrest you. Also from now on be sure to have your papers on you and when asked tell us were you are from, where you going and what business you have being out.

  12. Can someone please clarify the rumor that deputies will arrest people who are outside on their own property? I know it sounds absurd.My mother told me and I have no idea where my mother heard this, she said it appeared on her tablet. Might be tied in with this Page but I looked on here and everywhere else and and can ‘t find anything to support this absurd rumor.

  13. You have no right to arrest anyone on the beach it’s a state park for one. Two you are releasing criminals from the jail. Three you aren’t accepting anyone into the jail. Four there has not been a lawful order this isn’t Germany this is America land of the FREE and home of the BRAVE not the cowardly sheep some of you are. Wake up and smell the roses oh and by the way the beach was NEVER closed and you do have the right to excercise your animal’s.

  14. What in the heck are these right-wing Trumptards sniveling and whining about?
    Sometimes, when you really want something, you might resort to whining and blubbering to get it — in other words, you’ll snivel. … The word came to mean “be tearful,” and it suggested someone who was weak or nasty. Today it is often used in its adjective form, sniveling, followed by a contemptuous noun like “coward.”
