no one needs a sheriiff who's been indicted for murder. I feel sorry for the citizens of Aiken county to have been cursed with this criminal.

I myself have had 4 wrong doings by Mike Hunt and Cap. Owens since 2010 and 2011 also again just February of this year was arrested by his Deputy. I lost all chances after serving as a medic (since 1990) will get a chance in saving lives in the future. I can't even get a job in fast food. I can hardly save my own life. Its sad how much control they have over our future and our life. I recorded everything knowing hard evidence is needed. To date it has not been heard.....
mike hunt is a worthless piece of crap!!!

way too much money is spent on law enforcement in Aiken county. They will send 5 to 6 cars to one call because they are bored and use the 911 system to justify the high percentage of taxes we pay for they foolishness. Over 35 percent of county tax dollars are spend on mike hunt and his gang to thieves. On average they only issue less than 10 arrest warrants per day, and keep too many bond able citizens in our detention center over night because the bond court is only conducted at 10 a.m. And 3 p.m. If anyone intakes after about 12 noon they spend the night in our detention center regardless of the offense no matter how minor even for a misdemeanor A first offense. Then they use these statistics to milk more money out of the Aiken county councillor for additional detention center funds. Per capita Aiken county pays the most for county law enforcement compared to the other 45 counties in South Carolina. The entire Aiken county law enforcement system is grossly mismanaged, inefficient and peppered with corruption at every level.

call volume is one of the worst metrics to use when determining the budget level for law enforcement. You should also be looking at the number of arrest warrants issued in the unincorporated area of Aiken county by the sheriffs office, remove the calls made for assistance in the cities like north Augusta and Aiken. Also, the percentage of prosecuted warrants to those which are thrown out or dismissed is very important because if the agency is issuing a lot of bogus arrest warrants that makes it very inefficient and can look like there's more actual crime than there really is. Sounds like they need to do a better job filtering out the crap calls and develop a better response system. There is absolutely no need for more than one car to respond to most of the respond able calls they receive. Also, the notion that they have to respond to every call is absurd. The dispatchers simply need to do a better job of assessing the level of emergency that each situation presents. In many cases there simply is no alleged criminal activity reported which means that there is absolutely no need for the sheriffs office to respond with one or more patrol cars. The system they have now is ineffective, inefficient and a waste of county taxpayer dollars.
Too much

hell son that about 200 calls a day in Aiken county for the Aiken county sheriffs office. That's really hard to believe since if you look at the daily bookings in Aiken county and its on average only about 5 people throughout the entire county to include those arrested by brunette town, new ellenton, north Augusta, Aiken city, and the sc highway patrol. My god what the hell is the sheriff doing responding to 70000 calls a year? Maybe that's why we see 5 or 6 deputy cars at one house when someone says their dog is lost.

crime rate is a better statistic than call volume. What is the felony A crime rate in Aiken county (murder, etc.). That's the statistic we need to be using to justify tax payer expenditure on law enforcement funding in the unincorporated area of Aiken county. If they are responding to each and every 911 call without doing a little screening to determine if they respond and the level of response we are surely wasting taxpayer dollars in a very inefficient manner.

Way too much money is spent on the sheriffs office given the low crime rate in Aiken county. The Aiken county council should redirect millions of dollars into improving our county rather than throwing tax dollars away supporting the sheriff just based on call volume. Most calls are nothing more than silly requests for a deputy and not related to a criminal event, they should be screening these calls and quit sending every deputy to the scene of a non event like a bunch of red neck cow boys and then expect the Aiken county council to continue funding this non sense.

bunch of dumb a22s they shouldn't be responding to over 1/2 of those silly calls and then they come out like a bunch of bees on honey even for the smallest complaints. It's nothing but a big waste of taxpayers money and total incompetence.

Mike Hunt must have lost his mind if he thinks the Aiken County Council is going to give his employees a 20 percent pay raise across the board at a cost to taxpayers and voters of 4 mils. No one else in our local government is getting such a jump in pay not the judges, not the prosecutors, not the teachers, no body. He needs to start effectively run and operate his department and quit running up and down highway 421 in his big white truck many times drunk as a skunk.

It gets old to constantly post he is ged educated, corrupt, act like he shot and killed someone last night in the woods behind his house with a 9mm and post this on the forums as news and it was disposed 20 years ago without prosecution. Just saying all you guys beat a dead horse.
mike hunt is a drunk sheriff who cannot effectively manage our sheriff's department. He should be arrested by Sled for misconduct in office.
