Incident reports to the grand forks sheriff's department hit a ten year high in 2011. in addition to cracking down on crime sheriff bob rost says the department has seen tremendous growth in recent years in the area of transports and in the civil process. rost says much of what the department does is dictated by the courts. On the actual crime front rost says the department had plenty to do last year but overall the county is still a pretty safe place to live. The department did see an increase in the number of assaults...drug arrests...fraud cases...theft...and vandalism. There were no homicides in 2011 and only single cases of arson...forcible sex acts....forgery...and robbery.
