Man oh man,what are we going to do. we have know Law Enforcement,in the county.I know it is soon to be Election,time.i don't even want to leave my house.i'm scared my house will get broke into.i have not seen a patrol car on my road in over a year, that is so sad.Sheriff Holt, has got to go.we need someone who will make these Deputy's get out of the car and do their jobs.But they are scared to death.Vote out Holt, its time to start at the bottom and work our way to the top.Vote everyone out Before we lose every thing we worked hard for.I dont know about you but i work hard for what i got.seems like all the county deputys want to do is write speeding ticketts.get out of the car and do your JOB

The police have to write tickets. They are a revenue generating department. How else do they justify their employment?

It cost more money to patrol neighborhoods. Gas isnt cheap.

So spend money driving around or make money issuing tickets?

Risk your life confronting a drug dealer or go home to a warm bed by pulling over old people for not using a turn signal?

Get a job in a dangerous town like Nashville that has high standards or take it easy in Springfield with low qualifications?

Seems like an easy decision for most people.

Its up to you to protect yourself. Police only "respond" to calls. They do not "prevent" crime... there's no money in it.

Get yourself several weapons and a dog.

Do not trust the police when they pull you over and do not consent to a car search. They are not trying to make sure you are safe... but trying to collect any evidence they can get against you. Follow the money!!!

I always thought the Sheriff's dept patrolled the county, Springfield Police, the city and THP patrolled the interstates. I guess I'm wrong. The county had a car pulled over on 5th Ave.E last Sunday and I've seen them parked at the animal control shelter on Industrial Dr, several times, especially week-ends.
My question is, if the county writes a ticket in the city limits, do you go to city court or the county building court room?

The City is within the County so County can still write tickets within the City.

The County is within the State so State Troopers can write tickets within the County and therefore, the City too.

Whichever law enforcement agency writes the ticket, is where you show up.

Now let me get this straight...even though there are city officers in almost all of the communities, the Sheriff's Dept. can write tickets? Then why don't they lend a hand in helping solve these murders in the City limits? Seems like a win/win situation to me.

The county is suppose to be patrolling the county not writing tickets in the city. Their jobs are to protect the people out in the county. Springfield should not have any crime at all.with city cops.THP.and the county patrolling it.Sheriff Holt has let the county citizen's down again. We need our roads patrolled.with this even a election year you would think he would get them on these back roads.but know he does not care about the citizens of Robertson Country

Thank you ,Voter & Curious. That was my point. Common sense, at times, is difficult for some, especially if he or she is trying to be a Smarty Pants.

If county sheriff or THP write you a ticket,you go to the county court.city write you a ticket,you may go to city court,but I have seen them send a city ticket to county court.but most of the time if city writes you,you will go to city court.CS must be a county cop.with his bs he is talking

I thought property taxes paid for police? It is all about revenue, ticket writing to the good people that have license & aren't thieves & such. New chief came in from out of town & his answer was out an old empty patrol car at a few inter sections, to funny. Springfield needs help in every area, first with the policing, then politics, anyone been to codes office, now that is a big joke, the guys they have running it is pitiful.

You people live in a cave...The city is in the county, the S.O. does help in the investigations, and if you break the law you will get stopped, and they search cars because its their job. I may not like it and I may not trust them but I am a man and not a child. I agree some deputies are to fat and some don't do much. Guess what at my work its the same way. Quit listening to shit house law degrees. Read a book for crying out loud. I will not vote for this sheriff. But at the same time if i screw up i am man enough to admit i had it coming. So tired of men i hear crying about why they got spanked. But they want to go out and get women by acting like they are macho. I just don't see it.

I keep reading and hearing pretty bad stuff about Bill Holt, which may or may not be the truth. However, if he is so bad why is he unopposed? Just doesn't make sense to me.
