Promotions are great. The extra dollars to pay them could hire at least one more officer. The budget obviously isn’t to enhance the community but, reward the officers! Our money goes directly into their pockets. We do need them, so, time will tell. Most folks here do their own police work. I can’t believe I had to install cameras on my property. Now, they don’t have to question me.

    False math. One needs to adequately pay quality staff to keep them. Officers with this kind of experience, training and a positive track record could go anywhere.

      Let’s not promote one, let’s promote “three.” Come on man, do the math. In this county, don’t call the sheriff, call the coroner. Been there and had to do that. Not funny at all!

    Those people you call "thugs" are here to protect us. Sure they can't be all over the place all the time. What one has to do is be mindful to prevent crimes; to put up safeguards themselves and for their families. It may also have to do with who you "run" with. Anymore these days one has to be watchful when he/she meets new people and to process who they are and what they are before getting close to them and inviting them into their homes. Remember the old saying "a wolf in sheep's clothing?" There are such things as neighborhood watch programs you know? If a person or group of people want to cut down on potential crimes where they live, then they have to be vigilant as a collective group-it they see anything suspicious, drop that "dime" and call the proper authorities.

    They usually do a call back and ask you if you want to know if they caught the culprit in what ever he/she is doing; if they got arrested, etc. or you have the option to tell them don't do a call back I know that in my neighborhood my neighbors and I are very watchful for each other and will report if something suspicious is going on. So some of you folks need to do the math and realize that regardless of how much someone is paid for a position or what the position is-we all have to work with our LE folks and may I emphasize again-be VIGILANT! Don't sit at home all the time and moan and groan about it-do something about it! Hence, maybe the coroner won't be that busy any more and the life you save may be your own.

      Thank you for your post. It's rather amazing just how good a job our SO does given the budget and size of the territory. Same goes for Animal Services. Always so much criticism but people here, for the most part, aren't willing to pay for more.

            Maybe you are stupid and need to open your eyes about a lot of things going on around here. Sure things need to be fixed but they take time. All of us who are concerned can give our input the best we can whether we're shut ins on th pc's at home or going to meetings, or circulating petitions not to forget voting it's the American way and it's our rights. So you can stay out of my business and I'll stay out of yours (whatever your business is-hope it's not illegal). Good day and lets MAGA! Let's do the best we can to make our county great again too!

    It wasn't a b day party, his daughter was leaving to start college at UCSF. So apparently saying goodbye to your daughter as a father might not be a priority or important to a low life such as yourself but it was to sheriff rick. Keep showing your obsession with this b day party b.s. it just shows how pathetic you are.
