Does the sheriffs department have set patrols for the county officers? Or do the just ride around all the time and patrol or more importantly "not patrol" where they want?

If you are seeing them out and about..rest assured they are doing their jobs patrolling. If you doubt that..call Mike or Frankie and report them.

well I don't know if there is a set patrol schedule. But a friend of mine told me to get them to patrol where he lives he has to actually call them (every time). Otherwise they never come around. and it must be like a drag strip up there. because there are black marks in multiple places on the road where ppl do burnouts. and another residents dog got ran over Tuesday morning and the guy was driving way over the speed limit.

all I know is it is a good thing it wasn't it wasn't one on the small children that live up there. That would be FAR TOO GREAT A PRICE TO PAY to get the services taxpayers pay for!

your right....lets see back at the first of the year I had a policeman stand in my front yard and say that they didnt have the manpower to sit and catch speeders up martins creek and but yet you see them at the store's or in parking lots talking it up or better yet....in front of the police station in town just grouped up out front smoking and laughing it up.Then when I talked with our sheriff about patrolls in march.....havent seen the first one up in here.Until few weeks back but its not the patroll cop......he moved in up the road.So hummmmm its not the first time I have been told something would be done.....If Kent was still in office.....He would have taken care of the everything.

well I dont know about the whole "kent" comparison ! Mike and kent are as different as night and day. Mike does try and kent was first and foremost a politician. I think it is the officers I think mike tells about something and they just kinda let it pass right in one ear and......, Mike has a lot of things on his plate. He needs someone to make sure his deputies do what needs to be done! I mean I know for a fact a patrol has been requested multiple times up there in canah hollow. And I do think the sheriff has told his deputies. But they still neglect to patrol up there...! But I do think Mike tries.

If they are going to fee grab I'm glad they do it on the interstate. Our fly by night police dept. just sits on our 3 city streets, and whoa unto you if you forget to signal or some other minor mistake such as tag cover or seat belt. But that's all they are capable of I guess, after all look at their leader. I think of a school kid who's lunch money has just been taken whenever he sticks his mouth out, swells his chest, and stands tall "4' tall that is"

Go pay your ticket and get over it. If you would rather have things stolen due of lack of patrol in your neighborhood than let it be. Traffic violations are against the law also. You must be hurt over the hospital or the animal shelter so I say again, "Get over it". If you think people should violate the laws (i.e.- traffic LAWS)then you can be the one to tell the kids parent why their kid was struck by a car.

Regan Tilson and the Town of Erwin Police Dept. are alot better then the dumb asses at the Sheriff Dept. hell half the Meth Busted the Sheriff Dept. do they have to call Regan to come clean it all up our Sheriff Office is a joke I would much rather have the Police Dept. then all the dip shits that work for the county hell there all rejects from other Countys and Sheriff Hensley has to hire them because no onw want to work for him or fatass. And another thing all them Meth busted that the Sheriffs dept said they busted the only reason they busted them was because they found out that the Police Dept and the DEA was getting ready to go bust them so Mike and Fat Ass went running out there before the City got evrything ready to go. Ask some of the Police officers and let them tell you about the DEA Agent going down there and cussion Sheriff Mike out for about messing everything up for them. And I bet ole 4 foot tall Regan would beat the shit out of your worthless bitch ass.

Alls ims sayin is STOP FEE GRABBIN! and if not get out on the interstate and FEE GRAB from a few different people instead of the same ones every day!!!! Damn I'm gonna have to get a second job to pay these tickets for major crimes that I have committed, driving 6 miles over the speed limit! For example! Why don't you concentrate on solving some burglaries or something? Oh never mind that takes effort, your right it's easer to just write the ticket:) we need a police dept with some trained police officers who can investigate more than "misdemeanor traffic violations"

Yea, Mike has runnoft all the seasoned officers! Look at the last year, hell ever Fkn one of the good ones are gone. This fckd up bunch we got in there now don't know where the fck they sh!t last. I'd say the Erwin police force will pick up these assets. The Sheriffs loss is the city's gain. Just like always the Police department gets the good ones. I can't wait till our OL friends get back in power. The town was a better place with Walker, Butler, Mcnalley, and the other old guy, they just minded their own fckn business. I've talked to sum of the city cops and they are considering hiring Walker to start thier own drug force, that will put a fckn halt to the Sheriffs boast! Go Regan! We the mutha fckn people behind you, Luts take these bitches down!

Ill stick to my job as a farmer because I donr believe I could do their job. As for 6 miles over the speed limit? Ivw never seen or heard of someone geting a ticket for 6 over unless your license are suspended. Just donr speed. If you have a problem talk to the chief. Otherwise your rantts are falling on deaf ears.

Congrats Mike and to Regan for joint efforts in solving crimes from last wk. We appreciate you all putting 3 juveniles off the streets. They were entertaining themselves painting up our churches and anything else handy. Shall we paint them up real well and march them up and down the streets?
Maybe I hit upon a good punishment or have them clean (scrub) the paint off the buildings.

That wont happen they will. The Judge will just slap them on the wrist and put them on Probation and that will be it and im not throwing off on the Police or Sheriff Department. Its just the way this town is evryone gets a slap on the wrist and probation and the will go back to doing the same old stuff again. People that break the law in this county never learn anyting its always the same people getting arrested over and over. I think they should arrest the parents of these kids too for letting them act this way. I know when I was going up if I would have got in trouble over something like this a would have got the ole belt or switch when I got home. And im glad my parents where like that it make you learn to respect other people stuff.But these days if someone whipped there kids like that the parents would be in jail.. Its sad!

Well all I know is if your employees aren't doing what you are telling them to do they should be disciplined. I mean isn't that the way it works on every other job if your people don't follow the instructions they are given there is a penalty! it would be interesting to see if any write ups were given to any officers who supposedly didn't patrol " where they were told to".
