Lee thinks about him self but i guess when you get a sheriff' pay, retirment check and a pay rise right after you take office you don't need a part time job. a lot of people don't make that to suport their family

Other agencies do the same thing, I think it's more of less knowing where your gpnna be only your days off Incase of an emergency...as an officer I think your "always on call"...if you just wanna quit, then quit...i mean really what are they gonna do fire you because of a second job I doubt it

So just how many jobs do you have? The way I see it your time off is your time off. I can see is you are a road deputy that you might be called out in case of emergency but office staff... Really. It takes more then 1 job to make ends meet for a lot of families these days and as long as the second job doesn't get in the way of the first job what business is it of the first employer. The main question that gets me on the application is your income at the second job. What business is that of the Sherrif's? I can see him needing to know what yours hours are and where the second job is located but your other income is between you and the IRS.

Is it thier business, no...is it simple redundancy in department wide protocol that is intended for some but applied to all, probly so...at my job I am required to report any second jobs because while operating a vehicle that belongs to a goverment entity I am only allowed to drive "x number" of hours a day...a second job, which I have can put me over the department of transportation limit for safe operation...yes it's ridiculous and but point is I'm not just gonna quit to prove a point that it isn't their business, infact if I lied about it they probably wouldn't ever know...I just don't think it's that big of an issue, to them or me, it's just protocol that we must all deal with in the modern world...if they asked I'd tell them, if you gotta have 2 jobs to support your family, you don't question stuff like that...you simply go with it and take care of your family, or that's what I do

What I do on my time is my business. Furthermore, if I want a second job should I ask for permission? This is truly ridiculous and a gross, even vulgar display of what type of power an employer is capable of having when the administration is not run properly. It is a shame, but it is a change.

I understand about having a second job but if you're going be working in law-enforcement Or for a parish agency I think that could comes back and would be a liability on the sheriffs office

Yeah... All those bus routes are endangering the integrity of the sheriffs office... Which we all know they don't need any help doing that.

In Last Year's Sheriff's race- many individual names were discussed, supposed actions on their own time, personalities, wife-beaters, donut-eaters, work-slackers, payroll-frauding, yada, yada, etc. Anyway, I guess the sheriff is protecting the office's integrity for the next 3 years-He's trying to keep the water clear & the ground dry to divert all the MUD SLINGING that went on in the last election. he don't want to hear (during the next campaign) that his chief deputy, one of the detectives, or radio operator have been moonlighting as a MALE stripper when not on the clock at the S.O.!

In an economy where it is difficult to get one job, much less two?!?! I feel as if a deputy is in a financial situation that required the supplement of a secondary income he should be allowed to do just that. The sheriff is making a living to the tune of about 3x that of a well paid deputy. In his situation he probably does not consider a second job a necessity. However, ask the man struggling to make a living and support a family while making 10 bucks an hr at the detention center how fair it is. Ask the man who drives a school bus for a little extra money for his family... The one who farms... Ask the hard working, blue collar deputies from years past what it hurts to have a second job. It is fairly easy for people to say that a second job to an individual who is able bodied is a bad thing... From the outside looking in. From he inside looking out? This does nothing but undermind the hard working Americans who want to do a little better for their families, while doing a job they love. It is absolutely sickening to think this is even in question... Or up for debate for that matter. It is a shame that someone can look at the situation at hand and think that this somehow endangers your we'll being as a citizen. Peace officers in this state make well below the national average for doing this job. If not for this a secondary means for income would probably not be necessary for most. So consider that while you are supporting this requirement that has been opposed on your deputies... Also consider a person facing economic hardship may be forced to find employment elsewhere... And the job he is leaving will be less appealing to the next applicant. Ultimately this means poor quality employees which leads to even more poor job performance. None of us want this to continue at that rate, especially people who have taken time to consider these issues.

If you want a second job I think you should be able to get one, I have one, but I work for the state and I have to report my extra earnings and it has to be evaluated if or not it is a conflict of interest to the state...point is, just fill it out and go on about your work, I don't think anyone is saying you can't, you simply have to report it

You're absolutely right, less satisfied employees = employees leaving for other opportunities whether law enforcement or not. Lee has managed to place several people in charge that have no business carrying a gun bc of past domestic violence occurrences and has also placed people in charge that have managed to run off very effective deputies simply bc they got the BIG HEAD now bc they're a Lieutenant!! WhooptyDo!!!! I just hope people see that Lee was a mistake.
