Who agrees with this? He drives home to Danville everyday and is out of touch with Logan's needs. He thinks Logan is safe. It's troubling to him to stop these thugs on the streets and take them to jail. I know first hand. If you take a complaint to him you are making his job tough to hear him tell it. The city of Logan needs a complete makeover from top down. The town has gone to hell in a hand basket.

Isn't the department looking at a lawsuit also? Because the chief kept an officer (or two) after than had been reports of them being to rough with citizens? I read something about in the paper but dont remember all the details..I'm just sayin, as someone on the outside looking in, he doesnt seem like he takes his job very seriously.

I had just seen a potential drug vehicle in a bad area of town. Had seen the vehicle 2 days in a row at the same time stopping at several places. The Chief was directing traffic and I told him of a potential drug deal, a suspicious SUV in city limits and hwere. He told me put my to call the state police. What a JERK. Acted like he could have cared less.

When a bank was robbed a few years ago. I handed my cell phone to the police, while a person told them the bank robber had just passed him going into Slab Town. The person gave the description of the get away car. Why didn't they lock down the High school, Grade School and Middle School? Why didn't they go to Slab Town, or the Island? Why didn't they ask for any back up to help them? So, then the robber tries to get on a school bus. All I heard out of the Chief was a power trip. He was on his cell phone using vulgarity saying he had it all under f-ing control. Sure right.. He was saying that Sheriff Hunter, did not need to come to the scene. Well, Sheriff Hunter did come by to check on the victims and see what he could do to help. Maybe if the Sheriff's Dept would have caught him before he got out of Logan County. But, the Chief had it under control. hahaha

You need someone willing to prosecute each and every small drug charge. You need someone willing to assign maximum jail time for the smaller drug offenses... You need SOBER magistrates... you need SOBER judges.....

You need TRASH to stop making claims that the cops are dirty.. and the cops to just start cleaning up EVERY single ADDICT, PERIOD... No remorse, no help, no nothing

He could care less. Logan is in the worst shape it has ever been in regarding crime. The town I'm speaking of. The mayor is ultimately accountable for this. He needs to get a set of balls on him and clean house. If you didn't know better, you would think the chief and Amber run things in this town. If I were chief, I'd make sure that there were 2 patrols out at all times canvassing town making a strong presence shown to these thugs and I'd make damn sure they were picked up if they were breaking the law. This shit has got to stop. Every citizen an business owner in this town should be flooding city hall with calls for his resignation!!!!!

The City of Logan has a very good chief, and police officers. There is only seven of them and they make more arrest and take more complaints then any other agency in the county. These guys risk there life everday. They work long hours, and only make about $12.oo a hour. Jimmy Sheppard is a great guy. He coahces every little league sport there is, and the kids love him. He is a great rolemodle. I know him personally, he would never cheat on his wife. They are happily married, and he loves her very much. Jr. would never write false statements about anyone. They are both very well liked, and extraordinary police officers.

Same here. Called them the other day when two vehicles went by me going over 80 mph on the blvd between 4 and 5 o'clock PM. One black Escalade SUV and one black Camaro--weaving in and out of traffic and flying from Dingess st. to Stollings where one took the back alley that has 25 mph posted on it because of children playing, and he did not even stop. As for police, the lady listened but I never saw one.
