It should be paid in association with population in large counties such as Montgomery, Baltimore County etc. it is around 80,000 for population 770,000 but Cecil County pop. approx. 80,000 so salary should be where it is at.

Apples and oranges. Sheriff's duties in those large counties are much different with no law enforcement responsibilities because Baltimore County Police and Montgomery County Police handle the crime. Cecil's sheriff handles primary law enforcement duties with like 150 employees between patrol and the jail. Also Cecil County has over 100,000 population not 80,000. Small jurisdiction chiefs in the Cecil County make more money than the sheriff with only a handful of officers.

Still with a population of 101,000 still should be around 60,000
Sheriff's in larger counties have twice the responsibility. The service of process is two fold or more and handling prisoners go throughout state where Cecil County deals with more local crime. Baltimore County Sheriff Office takes 10-15 prisoners too Dept. of Corrections every day where Cecil County once a week of maybe two or three. Also rural areas have farm area vs. people area. In the court system in the Baltimore City or Baltimore County they have 26 or more court rooms with three of four jury trials daily where in Cecil County you are luck if you have one a week so the Sheriff Office responsibilities are greatly increased. I still think 71,000 to 90,000 is a bit much.

How can you even compare Baltimore County Sheriff's responsibilities to the Sheriff of Cecil county's ? C'mon, you of all people should know. Baltimore County Sheriff is responsible for the courthouse, serving court papers, and transporting prisoners to others jurisdictions for court. That's it! Cecil County does all that too, PLUS, handles law enforcement and traffic duties as well, not to mention a CID unit, drug task force, and special crimes units as well. He also runs the CCDC, which the Sheriff of Baltimore Count does not. This is not even close. The Sheriff of Cecil County should receive twice the salary of the Baltimore County Sheriff. This is a no brainer.

The request justifies the raise request. The Sheriff of Cecil County is responsible for the courts, law enforcement, and corrections. The population difference vs. responsibility equals a raise. Lighten up and remember the Sheriff is the highest ranking law enforcement officer in Cecil County. He has deputies that make more money than him.

Depuites do more work at hourly rate. Sheriff may be highest ranking but still population does not equate 70,000

Taxpayer you expose your lack of knowledge every time you type a comment. The Sheriff's in the Counties you mentioned are not responsible for a quarter of what the Sheriff in Cecil County is from day one. There are more than 200 employees, a fleet of around a 100 vehicles, a jail facility, a circuit court house, and more civil documents than you think. The Sheriff and the Deputies are woefully underpaid in comparison to agencies of similar size and responsibilities. The current Sheriff has not needed to be overly concerned about his pay because he has a pension from the State Police to augment his income. Sheriff's and Police Chiefs of larger agencies are CEO's. Depending on the size and scope of the agency they should be paid accordingly. Show me an organization with as much responsibility in America where a CEO makes $71K.

That is why you should "read first" taxpayer. Educate yourself before you make a statement. Dah.
