Audit 2004

Can't wait - but I'm going to have to. A 30 y/o blonde is picking me up (well, rolling me out) in 18 minutes for a little trip to Brunswick tonight. It's a troll thing.

I'll be all over it first thing in the morning (the audit).

If you don't mind my asking, who has marked up the audit. Check marks and comments. Just wondering.

Alot here that is definately questionable at best. My honest opinion, we need someone that isn't from around here to be sheriff. Someone who does not have ties to everyone and their mother. Someone that will come in and run a department like it should be run. There are too many question marks that surround the individuals that will run for sheriff. The current sheriff is being questioned for things he has done. The person running against him is already being questioned inregards to his ties and the election time hasn't even started yet. Are Gregory's ties to others in the county in certain positions questionable.....YES. If he is being questioned now, what will happen if he gets the office. NOW, does this mean he is not a better alternative than the current situation, don't know.I am not saying he is not a better solution, but questionable. The current sheriff, there is definately reasons he should maybe not be there anymore.
Should the county commissioners be in control of the drug funds???....HELL NO!!!!! Too much politics and too much animisity between departments. Should the sheriff have to get a comissioner to cosign the check, yeah maybe they do. BUT, the question is then raised, if someone else with "ties" in the commission becomes sheriff, does the commission have "control" of the funds? This could go on for ever with the questions that could be raised. Has this whole thing blown way out of purportion....maybe. Still maybe we need to look for an "Outside" candidate with experience to come in and let's see how things go. If the candidates are always "On the Inside" there will always be questions asked, and always be that dought. Hell we could be talking about a whole new ballgame next year.

Just my 2 cents

Thanks for clear up what you would be all over this morning.

The check marks are just there as I went through the audit I would check things off. Not really important just for my records. Trying to figure out what went where and why.

And the last comment,
You might be right with the outside guy, but name one that could get elected. We have to trust somebody local and Tommy is that person. If the worst thing that comes out is that his wife works for Steve Berry, I think we are ok. If the folks in district 3 don't want Steve there they will vote him out in Nov. 2008. It is there choice not ours. That is why district 4 has no say in the Sheriff's budget, because that is what they choose and they picked Charlene.

I can certainly empathize with the rationale behind wanting a clean start with a person with no local connections. Of course, you can do that with a position like county manager, but not with an elected sheriff who, for openers, has to have lived in the community for at least a year by the qualification deadline.

Any candidate is going to have lived here at least a year. They are all bound to have "connections" of one sort or another. The "connections,' per se, are not necessarily a problem.

However, long time loyalists of the incumbent who have, in effect, been bought by years of favoritism,
differential (if not deferential) treatment of jailed member of certain families and harrassment of others, free trips to California, tuitions paid to private schools, football uniforms, bus trips, churh lawns mowed, etc., etc, ALL with siezed drug funds in clear violation of federal law - that is a problem!

By the way, if we had a damned nearly neutered sheriff's department (limited to jail, courthouse, and summonses) AND a Camden County Police Department - which I have advocated previously- then the county manager could, in fact, do a national search for the best candidate for the chief of that department.

What are the differences as far as jurisdiction and clarification of duties in a Sheriffs Dept. vs, a County Police Dept?

Anonymous said...

I'm from Savannah, where for as long as I can remember, we had a sheriff and a county police department. The sheriff was elected; the chief of the county PD hired by the county commission.

The sheriff ran the county jail, provided security at the courthouse and delivered summonses.
I believe they also apprehended fols with bench warrant fron the state court. However, the sheriff's office did no other policing duites.'

All of your policing, from crime prefvention / apprhension, to traffic endforcement, to search and rescue, etc., was done in the unincorporated areas by the county police. Each incorporated town or city of course had their own PD.

If we stood up a county PD here, that is how it would work. Some of the side effects wouyld be a huge reduction in the number of personnel and vehicles in the sheriff's office. A great many, would, of course, transition over to the new PD - at the discretion of the new chief. (The key would be that the new chief should be the very first hire.)


To cut opponents off at the pass, let me point out that about 2 - maybe three - years ago, the City of Savannah PD and the Chatham County PD merged to form the Savannah-Chatahm Metropolitan Police Department. Seems to be working out well. They still have the sheriff, doing such duties as I previously described.

How would a move like that happen? Is it voted on by the public? The Commission? In our current state, how would the 2 entities come about?

Anonymous said...

Well, I guess there would have to be an effort to build up public support for the idea.

Letters-to-the-editor springs to mind.

Someone addressing the county commission from a well thought out and well written presentation on the matter, with copies to all of the media present - and not.

E-mails to commissioners.

Ultimately, a vote by commissioners. I'm not sure if any kind of state approval would be needed, but perhaps not.

As to neutering the sheriff's office, the commision could simply provide only funding sufficient to do the things I previously listed as the new, limited duties of the CCSO. If, God forbid, Smith were still in office and sued, the court would probably agree with the county's argument that there was no need to fund a duplication of the enforcement functions already being performed by the county PD. Of course, if Smith is dethroned, there is a 99% probability that his successor would not sue and be quite contrent with the new CCSO duties and budget, even without the drug money, which would go to the interdicting CCPD.

Any other ideas?

Bill Smith will never sue over the budget. That would require him to go to court and all these transactions from both his budget and the drug fund would be in question. I can almost bet that Berry is doing this just so Bill will get pissed off and file a lawsuit. That would be the dumbest thing this Sheriff has ever done.

Maybe I should be an advisor to the Sheriff??????

I just finished watching the TV Camden broadcast of the Camden County Commission meeting of 8/24.

Berry was really cooking. He won on every motion he made with the help of Rhodes and Zell.

The subject of the 911 center came up.

That would be another thing taken over by a Camden County Police Department.

Jay, we finally agree on something. I am telling you people we need a Camden County Police Department. I am going to take the time and put the numbers together. I will start off with estimating to make it a little clearer, but Jay as much as I disagree with some of your antics, I will agree with you here. First of all the commisoners would be responsible for selecting a well educated, police chief. This chief would answer to the commission. The chief would have to have a hiring policy,, Written Test, Background investigation, polygraph, and we would get quality police officers not good ole boys who family worked at the mill.. You have three agencies now SMPD,KPD, AND CASO. At any given time lets figure SMPD,KPD, AND CASO has 4 officers on the street sometimes 5. thats 12 to 15. You have 2 CHIEFS and one sheriff. thats approx 200k in salaries. Look at your command staff for all three agencies.. You could eliminate half of that and put their asses back on the street.. Detectives total you have about 20 total. thats about 9 more than Glynn County with half the crime and population. People I could go on and on.. I am not saying people lose their jobs,,, just reassign people and dont hire more. You could trim the budgets down. you could have a more effective Law Enforcement program,, and let the sheriff handle courts, warrants and the jail,,any one elected should not handle law enforcement duties because they tend to show favortism,, I wished i had the time to put it all together, because the citizens have no idea what kind of money we are wasting on Law Enforcement. It works in Glynn County and Chatham.. the problem is no one from KPD,CASO,AND Smpd wants to give up their power. it will work for a better Camden,,, We the citizens have got to get these office people off their asses and back on the street.. There is not a shortage of police officers, they are just sitting in the office from 9-5 and drawing money and benefits.. I bet you can call any of the offices and request some of these managers and never get them to answer the phones.. But the uninformed public has no idea. We are going to end up like Jax Fla with all the shooting and crime before you know it. But we the citizens have got to act and make a difference, because these people sitting on these high salaries do not give a sh$$.

On my last post I misspoke on the salaries, I was in a hurry. BTW if reported correctly makes 93k a year. I guess KPD cheif makes like 70-80k and the smpd chief makes like 70-80k maybe a little more or less I am unsure but I will find out. The Kpd has an assistant CHief,, unsure what he makes but I bet it is more than 50k,, and the chief deputy makes like 65-70k, and the major like 60-65k,,, smpd is trying to make Rodger Wooten Asst chief which will be like 55-60k,,maybe more,,who knows,, CAMDEN COUNTY POLICE,,,TRIM THE FAT,,,,

I just spoke with a lady that had called Judge Williams number to ask for Dennis Perry's plea be thrown out and to grant him a new trial. Guess what? As soon as Dennis' name was mentioned, the secretary or whoever she was got very cold and told the lady she would have to send the judge a fax or write her a letter. AND THEN SHE WOULDN'T GIVE HER THE FAX NUMBER!! She was told she would have to write a letter..which the lady has done. Does that tell you there is something wrong with this case? You people in Camden County better wake up and smell the roses before you find yourself in the same position that Dennis is in. He isn't asking to be released. Just for a FAIR trial!!
