I don't agree at all with what the Deputies did at the Sheriff's Office. But how can the Sheriff fire or let people resign for things that he has known about for years. Sheriff you let this go on for years and it finally caught up with them and now they are gone so now it is your turn. RESIGN JONES!!!!!

People know right from wrong and if Jones knew that stuff was going on he should of stopped it long time ago. Hasn't your mother ever told you that just because somebody else is doing wrong doesn't give you the right to do it too. So all of these deputies that were doing wrong should be fired. Also Jones should be too. Our world is so screwed up anymore, nobody wants to own up to their mistakes. People's taxes shouldn't be wasted on BS. Lenoir needs to wise up and take control over all of the crap going on in our county. The airport crap that went on with tax dollars and now this crap at the sheriff's office. Everybody that pays taxes should be raising hell with our officials.

Every idiot that voted straight republican or voted for Jones in the primary is gonna have to put up with this. We tried telling all u bible thumpers that Jones was bad news. You didn't want to listen. Well, 2014 is not too far ahead. Don't make the same mistake that many people in this country made by reelecting President Obama or King Idiot! VOTE JONES OUT BEFORE HE BRINGS THE WHOLE COUNTY DOWN.!!

Yes Jones needs to resign!! What else is he going to get by with? There are domestics going on between employees, embezzlement, sex parties, forcing deputies to put up his political signs, having secret meetings and telling his deputies nicely that it will be in there best interest to donate money each month to his political campaign and the list goes on. TIME FOR YOU TO GO JONES!!!!!

I see so many post about this sheriff and his dept . Yet no where do I see that anyone on here has taken the appropriate steps too report him and get an investigation in there . Not only on him but someone from the out sIde needs too go speak with both male and female inmates . Concerning malnourishment no medical treatment . Lice scabies staff infections etc these people on the inside need help .I know there in jail however there s a statement innocent until proven guilty. And the feds what in this world are you thinking .paying out bilkions s of federal money to house a federal inmate? Do you ever check on there conditions ?

I haven't really been keeping up with the details of this story as much as I probably should...but I have a question. Has it been proven that Jones knew about this for years or is it just speculation?

oh he knew. Of course he will say he didn't know about it but there are departments outside of Caldwell County that know about everything. That is why people look at the SO as a joke. There are alot of good Deputies there and if they get a decent Sheriff it can be a great Department again.

Alan I've always respected until he promoted that Brahma Bull as Captain after the hell he put me through ....and all the meds I have to take now. Now this sex deprived douche is daily patrolling the streets. I had my cell cut off completely. I think there are more trustworthy, God fearing deputies (Bates) who deserve to be Captain.

I have heard help is coming, may take a couple of months to see progress but I can't wait to see what happens.

Leave Bates on the damn porch! Not unless you want a captain that cheats on firearm qualifications. What a douche!

Where do we go to report what we know? Who do we speak too? I know people that have tried to make complaints and they were told the sheriff is an elected official and no one was above the sheriff... So please tell us how its done.

Well technically speaking yes the Sheriff is the highest law enforcement in any given county but the voter has the power to remove him so just keep that in mind. To answer your question I would say your best bet is to have your evidence all together and give a call to the states attorney. You can try the SBI but this is a good ole boy state especially when dealing with law enforcement so you may not have the desired results. If you have something documented go to local media outlets like the newspaper. There are things on the internet that can help you, Google it and see. The ACLU helps if have something substantial and they are not just for minorities as some think. The Sheriffs training and standards division is another place but just remember Jones sits on their board so good luck with that, how do you think he and his deputies avoid so much heat. You really have no local government options as the county manager and commission are all his butt kissing lackeys. Welcome to Hazard County.
