How many of u think that all maury county government officials including sheriff, police, judges , dcs ect. Needs to be investigated and even drug tested along with background checks ran from age 18?.... by the TBI. If u think this needs to be done please state what ur reasonings are and how many people in the community will be replaced .

agree...not for ny partcular reason except that anyone representing the county shouldnt have issue with being tested or having a complete background check. i think it should be standard practice. after all. it is we the citizens paying their salaries, and it is we the citizens whom they are accountable to. i read where people think welfare reciepiants should be drug tested, we the tax payers support their needs. we the tax payers support the counyt and city government as well. there must be a system of checks and balances for every level of government. countless times we have seen coverups, money dissappearing, favoratism, harrassment, etc. in maury county. if all is well, and on the up and up i really dont see why anyone would object to backgound check or drug testing. i think anyone in a position that represents the citizens would feel an obligation to do this. after all, arent they supposed to be the upfront and most honorable? they should be proud to verify that as public servants they have the cleanest of records. it should be required and become a matter of public record. we the citizens employ them. they should be held to the highest of standards, as any crime they commit is a travesty. we elect and pay them to enforce and they know the law, and make a commitment to the citizens to always do the right thing. we should require testing and background checks by outside independent agencies the results to be published yearly in the daily herald.

my husband used to work for the county as a corrections officer, and now works for the city as a police officer, i know they do randoms like 2 times a year (i think its twice, but i know at least once) but i do agree that some things need to change because the bad people who need weeded out are the ones making the good ones like my husband look bad.

i do agree that there are some good ones but truthfully... my recommendation.... get out and go where they can advance.... i have family thats worked in part of the system and i feel their decision of leaving was smart due to how it is there ... they always say .... birds of the sane feather flock together and if hubbys a good one... he wont remain there or atleast trasfer until the bads gone. I truely wish u guys luck....
