ok. let me see if i got this.You think the cars should keep the tint to protect the individuals arrested. Ha Ha Ha!!!!!! Their name is published in the paper with a mug shot most of the time. If they got caught doing something illegal why should we "hide" them in cop cars. I think the deputies used the tint to intimidate the public, because the respect for the sheriff's department had deminished.

Hey it is looking better already .Bet gas expense is way down.Think of all the money county is saving.Crime stats will tell but dont look for a decline in quality just a steady improvement.I think a lot hours and ot were bogus last admin..Thats my story and Im sticking to it.Go Mason and crew.
The gas is probably the same since every one is still taking home the cars, and the money is not being saved, he has filled all the positions he let go and added to some, I just wonder how he is going to have the same amount of personel or more and save money?

Another clueless peon.
That's what is wrong with TOPIX.

Deminished? Is that anything like the word "diminished?"

Yes, when transporting an convict, there should be tinting to protect not only the officer but the person being transported.
I'll bet you there is still a vehicle or two at UCSO that has tinted windows for transporting to and from court or other counties. Mason is smarter than that to put an officer in jeopardy. Or, is he?

BTW, those officers with many years of experience, which is admirable, can afford the poor pay in this county. Most, if they retired from another agency in GA or out-of-state, have a pension. I do see that as a plus. They won't have to pinch pennies serving ungrateful citizens at night, during bad weather, and holidays for pennies without additional overtime pay or decent benefits.

Unlike the previous Sheriff, Sheriff Mason is not afraid to surround himself with competent individuals. Let's face it if you were a college graduate with an advanced degree the previous Sheriff didn't want you around because you would pose a threat! Now lets look at the potential hiring pool in UC. If you want to hire somebody with LE background that has more than a HS diploma you would either have to hire from outside the County or hire retired LE that now live in UC. Simple choice from my perspective. In the future I believe you will see UC Deputies obtaining Bachelor and advanced degrees in Criminal Justice because there will be an emphasis placed on education by the new Sheriff.
Finally, don't be so ugly towards retired LE from FL. I'm 100% positive that they will be making a fraction of what they were when they retired. So we are getting educated trained and obviously dedicated individuals at a bargain price. Win for UC!

Mountain Education Center is a CHARTER High School. You get a Diploma, not a GED.

At least they have a diploma, that's better than your 10th grade dropout status!

It sounds as your idea of a sheriff supposedly the highest Law Enforcement officer in the county is nothing more than a ticket writer in electing a retired state patrol officer you are well on your way and a retired Florida Police chief as Chief Deputy sounds as he is after the approval of the Florida Folk instead of the locals. I abstained in the last election as I disliked both candidates and the lesser of two evils is still evil. It seems that Mack could have hired a good local law enforcement officer as his chief deputy, just DAMN.

The needle for the antibiotic shot would not go through the fabric of his "britches" so, he had to drop'em.

I can't help but laugh at the clowns who get on this forum and start trying to undermine a new sheriff who hasn't even been in office but a couple of weeks. I guess none of you realize that they don't write books or make movies out of drunk do nothing sheriff and a bunch of rogue punks who tried and played like they were Chicago Cops back in the days of ole with corruption in every action. If Mason plays his cards right he will become one the the most known and respected law enforcement officer in this state. All it takes is to make public some of the corruption by both public officials and private sector people who have always thought of themselves as being above the law. I guess it never came across that lame brain of yours that retired investigators from Fl. and members of the law enforcement communities can investigate our high and mighty and not have to worry about how much their families may suffer from it. One of the smartest moves I have seen made in good ole Blairsville in a long time. Many are willing to assist by telling what they know to someone they feel is clean and trying to do the right thing.

Very well written. If only a small percentage of citizens were to help, this corruption problem could be cleaned up. As long as people are willing to just sit by and do nothing, then we will always have the disgrace we have now.

What do you mean by "the disgrace we have now"? The new Mack crew? They JUST took over and already you refer to the SO as currently a disgrace? Way too soon for that claim... give 'em some time!

Maybe you should pay attention Mike; it could perhaps help you reframe from kneejerk, slipshod remarks.

Reading, as well as understandings postings, sometimes in multiples, is essential in making reasonable responses, worthy of serious consideration.

Both, Just A Good Laugh and Agreed, have made two of the most reasonable and intelligent points yet to be made regarding actual fact, to this juncture, being primarily devoid upon this thread.

Pay attention. Acquire knowledge, and maybe some wisdom. Take off the blinders try learning something, itís never too late.

Uh, OK... but only if YOU proofread your otherwise "so eloquent" posts for silly errors as quoted herein. And it's refrain, not refrane as you obviously mis-typed.

You school me, I'll school you. Ain't we both so much smarter now? >;-)

The only reason he was voted in is because Union Co has went to Republican. If they had voted for the man, Sheriff Stephens would still be in. And as far as law services under his belt, what are they? Didn't know dropping his belt and trading tickets out with females was law services.
