With the end of the year now past Louisa County Sheriff Brad Turner says the numbers are now in for 2010. Overall calls for service were about the same; however he says arrests and citations both went up by about 35% from 2009. But the biggest increase is seen in weapons permit’s that have been issued. In 07 they had 92 permits to carry issued and in 2010 they had 230 issued in the county. Turner says he’s not sure exactly why those numbers have gone up so much. With only a week into the New Year Turner says they are staying busy with gun permit applications.
