The sheriff is an elected office. The judge has no authority over the sheriff. That's bull.

why do you people get on here and start one lie right after another. They have not said one thing about closing sheriffs department down. They would not even think about doing that.

The office of the Sheriff is more than the county law enforcement agency. It is also part of the state excutive branch of governemnt with power of collecting taxes. The local government doesn't have authority over closing or consolidating the office. There is not anything they can do and only the General Assembly can consolidate his office with the jailer if they see fit. Since 1891 when section 105 was amended not one Sheriff/Jailer of any county has been consolidated. Not one case has been brought before the General Assembly.

Now if it is a real estate closing such as forcing the Sheriff's office to relocate to the courthouse instead of maintaining seperate office space in rented buildings it can be done. That does not hamper his ability to serve the county and might save a couple of bucks. But he is not going to be removed nor his office you F'ing morons.

FYI if the county powers that be did petition the General Assembly to consolidate the offices of jailer and sheriff it will be the jailer who goes and not the sheriff. It is in one of the subsections of the parent URL of the link I posted above to section 105 covering consolidating power.

The judge controls the sheriffs budget and the clerks budget and the jails budget and the countys budget. Therefore he controls it all.

The sheriff is an elected office. The judge can not legally do anything that keeps the sheriff from carrying out his duties. You all seem to think huff is a mob boss that can control us all. Taint so.

Now emt as your minimum wage job is directly controlled by him you probably should fear him. But rick riddle has no worries.

You are soooooo wrong. The fiscal court can't get rid of him, but they can take everything from him and make him sit in his office and collect taxes(his only real duty).

Hell that would thrill him to death. He don't want to get out and make calls anyway. Everytime dispatch yells at him he is always 10-6 (which means busy) at something, and it is usually sitting at pierce's grocery or eating. If he was releived of his law enforcement duties that would be a thrill for him, sit in a office, collect taxes, and make $70,000 + a year! Who wouldn't want that job! And yes the sheriff makes 70 + a year!

If you think the sheriff's only duty is collecting taxes you're full o sh!t.last time I will say it----the sheriff is an elected office.no one in the county can do away with an elected office or keep the holder from doing his duties.riddle will have frankfort and the KY Constitution on his side if it comes to it. Huff can't cut funding to the sheriff any more than you can.

You've shown you're true colors----just a lowly poorly paid EMT mad at the world. Rick riddle is not your problem. Your problem is huff and fat ass lonnie. They are the ones who will eventualy bankrupt the ambulance service and leave you without a job. Within 2 years clinton co will have a private owned ambulance service again ala transcare. Remember those days?

Rick will be there to keep you from breaking into my house and stealing my stuff when that happens.

listen i believe instead of talking closing down things our county needs like or sheriffs office, jail, we need to sell off the things we dont need like that big nice welcome center that just sets there costing us money also look at the other areas that maybe over staffed we need rick yes hes not perfect but neither are we and he does do his job sometimes if you watch he does more than his dept, has to look at the funeral homes the next funeral you see it will be led by our sheriff's dept.county has issues now close these areas down and see your issues will really be bad if no one there to control them this is not talking trash i talking truth

Who said I'm against the sheriff? I'm just telling you what Huff can do. Do you remember Transcare?

An idiot? Wow great way to refute what I said.

You ambulance drivers are a disgruntled bunch. You're getting screwed by the county.we get it. You've basically lost your insurance coverage and will slowly see other benefits cut out. Either put up with lonnie and his malarky or get out from under before your job is gone.lonnie will still have his big wig job even when a private owned ambulance company is in here. You won't.

Like I said know your enemy---riddle aint it. And huff aint as all powerful as you think.huff don't want to lose the ambulace service and the votes that will go with it. Look for a little fat man. He's the one who will sell out the emts and medics of this county to save his own job.

Basically as an emt you'd be paid better and have better benefits at cagles. Hell for that matter so would a medic. But not lonnie. He's getting fat and sassy right where he is.

You are the Idiot as you say. Transcare IS NOT the co. Sheriff's office! That is two totally different things! I am not taking up for Rick, But, since you are on here talking smack, I personally think that the Ambulance service needs to be run more efficiently (cut out frivolous and wasteful spending) and the Jail needs to become a 96 hr. hold-over facility. Then the jailer (who is also an elected official whose job cannot be cut by the CJE, neither can the Sheriff, BTW) becomes a transportation officer and bailiff at his current salary, but, most of the other jail staff is eliminated, therefore cutting costs.
