Today's announcement and press conference is the result of an investigation coined “Operation Gunsmoke”. Across the Two State, a joint effort between Federal, State and Local law enforcement/prosecutorial agencies took actions to arrest over 25 offenders who are accused of committing a combination of violent crimes.

Sheriff Hunt stared during the press conference, “We are simply not gonna tolerate gang related violence in our neighborhoods. This is the first wave today and there will be more to come in the future.” Some of the various charges include but not limited to, distribution and or trafficking of illegal drugs (Cocaine/methamphetamine), possession of firearms by a convicted felon, dealing in firearms without a license, etc. This is still an on-going investigation. More arrest are expected as this investigation continues in both South Carolina and Georgia.

“In attendance were law enforcement and prosecutorial executives from the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of South Carolina, United States Attorney’s Office for the District Southern District of Georgia , the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, the Second Judicial Circuit Solicitor’s Office, Richmond County District Attorney’s Office, the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office, the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office, the Aiken Department Public Safety, the North Augusta Department of Public Safety, and the SC State Law Enforcement Division (SLED).” (Credit: Aiken Public Safety)

Here’s an idea why don’t you bring back a traffic division that once Aiken county had when they had the DUI TASK FORCE I mean it’s great and all that you have 2 chargers per shift to act as chase cars to perform pit maneuvers when car chases happen but those cars are still assigned to road patrol it’s amazing how Aiken city has a traffic grant north Augusta has a traffic grant and a traffic division Aiken county bottom line needs a traffic division of some sort I mean highway patrol is short handed as you well know I am sure that it would be greatly appreciated by HP if ACSO could help and get a traffic division back In operation

I had a school bus pass me in the school zone on Clearwater rd at Belair rd. with the 25mph sign flashing!

You were all over Aiken high Rutland dr

Stephanie Lancaster

Thanks for what you do!!! Should have been by Kennedy this morning prob got that many more. Keep up the good work and God Bless

Go to Toolebeck road they speed there also.

THANK YOU . I have zero issues with putting a stop to these people who think the safety of our children takes a back seat to their hurry to be somewhere.

When I used to pick up at Aiken High, there were many that sped through those flashing lights. Lots of works trucks and dump trucks including DOT trucks. It was quite scary dodging potential wrecks!

I have asked for years for some help at Redcliffe elementary. Was told that they don't have the man power to patrol. Then you ride down the road to Jackson and there is two or three sitting talking with the Jackson police. The mornings are the worst fighting SRS traffic.

Only problem is... Only being in one area for one day won't make a difference :(

People speed like crazy through this specific area daily!!! 😔😔😔
