Working people dont get off work until 4or5 and the sheriffs dept now closes its offices at 4pm? I was told that they all leave at 4pm even the staff is talking about this.Also only two deputys working on evening 3-11 shift and two working 11-7 is this safe in a county so spread out as ours is?

He's right, I have heard this too. Sheriff leaves at 4pm, this is a disgrace. I guess if someone's house gets broke into at 9pm, the victims are shit outta luck

I guess the rest of the department quits at 4 pm also? You are just stirring up lies. At least he don't go to Wednesday weddings with inmates. Mike works many hours, as we all know there are no set hours for a county sheriff. At least he doesn't wait until his family goes to bed before he goes home. Truth hurts, think about it. Now I know why all your close friends used to call you "Price". Lol.

I guess it's been awhile, I ain't never been, or been called a coward. I think you would know thats a fact. You are the one consumed by spreading all the untruths.

Actually inmates do patrol on night shift. Mike put a stop to the inmates camping, playing ball, fishing, meeting women, and daycare for Kent. Mike puts a gun and badge on them and makes them work on patrol. It ain't much different than what kent was doing. JUST KIDDING! But that is how rediculous you all sound.

Where have you been for the last 15 years ? The sheriff dept. office was open when I was down by there the other day and it was after 5. As far as how many deputys are working it don't seem to be any different as there has never been more than 2 or 3 officers working on a shift in recent memory. I do remember times when Marlowe was sheriff there would only be 1 officer working at times. As with all dept. in this area it is a matter of funding. I would say in Washinton County with a population at least 5 times that of Unicoi you only have 5 or 6 officers working at a time.I guess if folks were willing to pay more taxes then you could have more officers.

The UCSD has 3-4 officers assigned to each shift. The administration is however requiring officers to take time off which had been accumulated under Kent's watch that put the sheriffs office at $500,000.00 deficit in accumulated overtime. This was gross malfeasance of office. It worked out good for the prince because he had all the people all the time, however sooner or later there comes a day of accountability. I was present in the county commission meeting where mike was appointed interm Sheriff. During this meeting he said that he and his projected administration already had a plan to significantly reduce the accumulated overtime and to cease the further accumulation of such time. I talked with Frank Rodgers last week and he told me that since that time that the department had reduced approximately half of that accumulated debt. For those of you who have the ability to see past your nose you would call this an achievement of magnitude ! This has been accomplished while still maintaining the day to day operations of the office better than it has been in a long while. I say kudos Sheriff Hensley and staff!

At no time was there ever just one deputy on the road, on a shift under Sheriff Ralph Marlowe.

Ralph did a better job than what people think,he wasn't a politician and didn't try and plaster his face all over the front page.Kent put his lies out there and people believed it,the same as he did when he ran against Bill Gaines and Pete Destafano and is now trying on Mike Hensley.
Ralph was professional and doesn't support Mike or Kent,but he isn't putting garbage out about either one,he's a good man.

Good job getting them off the street but
what an ignorant statement from our sheriff.If people want to continue using drugs in Unicoi County they can go somewhere else.

Not the best speaker in front of a camera but at least he's doing his job by getting dopeheads off the street and not conning old people out of their property like someone else did. Anybody got names of the garbage that was taken out today?

I'll take that as a compliment,it is killing your soul not knowing who I am,lol.
Only a moron such as yourself would keep finding fault with the best sheriff we've had in years.
Guess you're mad because you can't be there to call and tip them off.
good job

2 convictions is a step up from the revolving door it was when you ran it.
Better look into your crystal ball again,Mike has more people in the federal pen than you did the whole 10 years you were there,sure he will never wind up with a lot of rental properties,but he can look us in the eye and say he did his best without flinching.
