sheriff's good or bad? yes i love the fact that we have police present in town now!!i have lived in gold hill for 8 yrs bought our house in 2001, and since then the police have been in and out of gold hill. i have had cars with young kids flying up my road, so much that i started taking pictures of the regular cars and getting their plates. i have two kids and love my town, but recently we got the sheriff substation in jan. 19, 2009. since that time the police have been harassing locals coming out of guads. my husband and i go for a date(dinner and A drink) every other week, cuz it is close to home, it is our time together after working so hard to be good parents, people, volunteers and citizens of gold hill, we love our little town!!!but i dont believe it is right for the police to sit and wait for people to leave the restaurant, and instantly pull them over!!i was treated like a criminal for having A beer with my dinner. this is not a crime!!after the officer treated me terrible, he proceeded to give me my license back and take off after a speeder, my problem is this: if he truly thought i was drunk driving why would he let me go for a speeder? so PLEASE ALL YOU GOOD CITIZENS OF GOLD HILL, PLEASE BE CAREFUL, THEY DONT CARE WHO THEY PULL OVER THEY ARE JUST LOOKING TO GIVE A TICKET!!! THEY ALSO SO FOLLOWED ME,THE EVENING BEFORE,ON 6TH AVE(FIRST HIS HEADLIGHTS ON,THEN HE TURNED HIS HEADLIGHTS OFF, JUST PARK LIGHTS, GOT UP REAAALLLLY CLOSE, TURNED HIS PARK LIGHTS OFF AND PROCEEDED TO FOLLOW ME WITH NO LIGHTS!!!)TO HANBY AND THEN TURNED IN AT THE SCHOOL.

Soon the cops will be able to stick a needle in you to draw your blood. This is all in the works. Are you sober, drunk or high? The needle will tell. You can be stone cold sober and they'll ram a needle in you.

I was also harrassed by the police in Gold Hill. Two officers in a patrol car followed me out of Gold Hill, tailgated me all the way up I-5 to the town of rogue river. I tried slowing down, speeding up, changing lanes, etc. and they stayed very close to my bumper the whole time. I felt like it was dangerously close following distance and if had been any other car I would have driven to a police station for help. I felt like they were just waiting for me to do something wrong so they could pull me over. Finally I exited at the town of Rogue River and they also exited with me. They got back on the highway after I turned in to town. As I put my blinker on to turn they pulled up next to my car and I could see them both staring at me and laughing. As a woman I felt really disturbed by this and also very threatened. I feel like it was harrassment and totally inappropriate. I am concerned that this is how the local law enforcement treats law abiding citizens.

My wife and I are from Texas and have lived in Gold Hill for 3 years now. I have never seen a more crooked group of county sheriffs in all this country. They have followed us around many times for no reason, pulled us over and harassed us for no reason, told us to leave a rest stop before dark even though it was a posted overnight camping facility. Take their names, time, and place, and turn them in to the county sheriffs department. They are scared to go after illegal emigrants so their sick egotism makes them prey on innocent citizens. Let us all put a stop to this corruption.
