It's funny you know when it happens and where the officer is at. Are you doing the burglaries? If not shut up and stop stalking the officers. It is easy to talk about others when you probally sit at home, drink beer all day because you probally don't even have a job.

Don't know how they have time to stop all the speeders, all I ever see are when they are at the convience stores buying lottery tickets and riding around the shopping plaza checking for out of date plates on the cars while shoppers are in the stores.
Never seen Barney Larry out of the car. Always just driving around. Very productive!!!
Maybe the sheriffs office should consider taking over Interlachens police department, I'm sure they could do better than Barney and his crew.

Maybe you should put a badge on and put the beer back in the cooler at the convience store. Sounds like you may be doing something wrong since you are watching out for the police. Or maybe you want to shoplift and can't because the police is in the store.

Where is Officer Tom Williams with his 25 years plus experience? Oh I forgot he only works maybe 12 hours a month. That's 360 days of Law enforcement in Putnam County if he has been here 10 years.

I'm sorry that would be 180 days at 8 hour a day.

I love Interlachen, I lived & sold drugs in & around Interlachen for more than 35 years & never been caught. Keep stopping all the speeders & riding the parking lot of the shopping plaza,it makes my work a lot easier, Thanks for the good work "Interlachen Police Dept". I know where you are at all times, so I can keep selling drugs to all the school kids hanging out @ McDonald's & local swimming holes. Just as long as there's no after school programs or city programs that the kids can actually enjoy to keep them off the streets. I will be just fine selling my drugs,that the CIA brings in this country to distribute to your kids. Its kinda a form of population control,kinda the same as Hitler did. If you don't believe me Google "CIA airplane crash 4 tons cocaine". So the next time you see the I.P.D. pulling a speeder over in Interlachen blow your horn,let them know you prefer a speeder being stopped than stopping me,your worst nightmare!! Just remember, as long as you do NOT follow any of these steps I will stay out of jail. 1.Designate a lead person or coordinator for your Drug Free Zone effort.
2. Involve key people dont forget to include youth and youth-serving organizations as part of your group.
3. Meet often.
4. Conduct a community-needs assessment.
5. Work with the local media.
6. Create and maintain partnerships.
7. Maintain a written record of your efforts.
8. Conduct an ongoing evaluation of your efforts.
9. Recognize individual and group achievements.
10. Celebrate Your Success! PS...I'm really not a drug dealer,just thought I would get your attention & maybe help us all realize we can do this with-out the help of the I.P.D..******.Most Drug Free Zone strategies involve no financial cost, just peoples time, energy, and commitment, and maybe reallocating some resources. However, where costs do come into play, check with local government agencies to see what resources or services may be available. Community fund raisers may also be helpful. Thank you,Your Local Drug Dealer!!

Tom Williams will never be elected sheriff as long as carl beck supports hardy with huge campaign donations,If hardy wins expect to see all new dodge patrol cars,sure the county has to take the lowest bidder,but when jeff hardy submits options it will be off a dodge brochure,if it doesnt meet the spec's he can pay what he chooses,vote Tom Wiliams and stop this never ending crap in putnam county

You must be part of Kelly's clan. That is how he got his pricey Crown Vics. I believe key pad entry. Only available on Crown Vics.

Tom Williams, what a joke. Thinks you can run a SO like a Auto Shop.

I have had property in Interlachen since the early 1970s and wish to retire there.

A police Captain who I know personally told me he went to a seminar and the next big thing to hit Florida is crystal meth. This crud really causes robberies, violence and all sorts of destructive behavior. Big cites and small cities will be at the mercy of the cash starved morons looking for someone to get their next fix off of.

The only good officer Interlachen had, shot and killed his wife. The chief rides around most of the day as his wife tries to run the town business. Come on America!!!What about all the drug activity across from the fire station or down by the lake?? Have you ever spoken to Tom Williams?? He has the personality of a goat. Tom is not a people person. I used to get my car worked on there but his attitude is terrible so I went to another garage. I truly believe that once Jeff Hardy gets in as Sheriff, you will see a cleaning of not only the Sheriff's office but the county as well. True it will take time. But Jeff will Get r done !!!!!

The next thing to hit this county is meth!!!!!!
Where have you all been, under a rock? It has been here for a long time.
One of the biggest problems in this county right now is the communication between the Sheriffs office and the Daily News. The citizens paying for that spread sheet are only allowed to read what others decided we need to read.
Too many things are kept quite here, we the citizens need to know what is happening in all areas, not just where the S.O. and others can look good.
Maybe is time to let the powers to be that we want to be informed not baby sat. We need to be aware of what is happening around us and not what someone decides for us.
Being aware is the biggest part of being SAFE!!!!

What about the gang activity in the Interlachen area?? Yes folks it's here. In and around town, Hwy 20 west in the Lakeview Trail area, 315 North, Interlachen Lakes Estates, The gangs are in those areas. Thank God were are getting rid of that no count sheriff Keg bo Kelly. It seems the local news paper doesn't want the public to know all the facts. Neither does the PCSO. Once Mr Hardy is in office things will take a drastic change. In the mean time, stick your pistol in your pocket and don't be afraid to use it. It's called self protection. cause the PCSO will not do anything or the Barney & Co. of Interlachen PD.

Sheriff Kelly is a very smart man. He has looked into the gang complaints and determined that its just some wanna bes. He said that we shouldn't be worried because these are just kids and there is no real threat (unless you are a stop sign: you might get painted) But that's as far as it goes. The man is right. We haven't seen any gang activity. He didn't get to be Sheriff for no reason! I trust the man all the way!

Facts: I'm sorry but you are misinformed. There is plenty of gang activity and it's not just kids or wannabees. If they are a so called wannabe then they are a gonna be. Ride around Crescent City some time and LOOK. There are gang signs everywhere and have been for a long time.
