What the heck? I voted for Glen and what I got was a Chief that has hurt our county more that helped!! Talked to a county commissioner who told me that our chief has around twenty thousand dollars in overtime for the year plus his regular salary! I know that I was on the Glen band wagon but really don't know what to think! I think a lot of Glen why would he let this go on? Then I hear that we are broke but they let out of county officers drive the cars home! Thought when Gibson was in the county put a stop to that! I'm not ready to give up on Glen has anyone else heard this junk?

my opinion if citizens of Morgan county would stop doing stupid stuff like drugs,fighting, and all the other bull shit they do then all the over time would stop.some one has to do it or people would bitch because there calls weren't answered so it's damm if they do or damm if they don't.

Sue is right. Also, the Sheriffs Dept. Has a certain amount of money budgeted each year specifically for overtime. If the chief didn't get the overtime, someone else would. So no money would be saved. I think the Sheriff and the chief are trying hard to have the best department they can with what they have. They have several Meth lab busts and are working hard to crack down on the pill problems. These deputies and the sheriff and the chief put their lives in harms way everyday, and for very little money. Why not show them support and a little gratitude? Glen, the chief, and all the deputies have done more for Morgan County than the last few administrations have.

You do not want officers to NOT have drive home cars. You want them to be able to respond from home (as they often do in small rural communities such as ours). The cost to driving a patrol car home has been studied to death by departments all over the country and the cost savings are infinitesimal compared to the impact it has on operations.

In county officers yes I understand them driving there cars home but not out of county employees that's what I meant.

IMO,GLEN needs to be beatt the net election,hell they dont do anything up there,sit around drinkng their coffee and B.S al day!There are few good deputy's that have repeatedly ask for a few hrs of OT,BUT THE CHIEF AD GOOD OLE BOY GLEN wont approve it!I dont think GlEN ws ready to take on the office of MCS,the meth labs that are being found are usually the remains of thse so called portable labs,that are being thrown out on the side of the road,the (cave)lab has been known about for a long time,Drugs are a problem for the county for sure,but come on start handing down the proper punishment for the crime's and i would bet the thieving,and crazy stuff would stop,WAKE UP GLEN AND THE SO CALLED CHIEF,HOW ABOUT DO WHAT YOU PROMISED WHEN YOU WERE CAMPIGHNING FOR OFFICE!THAT WOLD BE A START:)

You all are crazy. In the past few months we had a personal tragedy happen in our family, had neighbors have to call the law, and been close to a wreck when it happened. All three times the Chief and the Sheriff both were on scene! Two out of the three times it was the Chief on scene first! The Chief usually runs the scene when he is on site, and in my personal observations I can tell you that he runs it expertly.

I used to think the same way that you all did, but I realized that I am wrong. They are both good men and they are doing a good job.

You may not like them, or they may be of the wrong political party, whatever, but their actions on the job are not what you are making them out to be.
Whatever

First off not just anyone can do this Job as a Sheriff or Chief: People are never happy with anyone that is put in office anywhere. The Sheriff, Chief and the Deputies of this department work for nearly nothing and for the ones that are working there from out of the county, do not live that far out of the county. I bet they live closer to the dept. then it is to go from the dept. to Oakdale. So stop complaining about out of County Deputies. That is in all Counties. You need to do your research about that. Because I know first hand that Scott Co, Campbell Co. Anderson Co. all have employies from different Counties.What is the big deal. If they are trained already then let them work. Counties included Morgan are always saying they are broke. So why pay all the money it takes to train a new deputy, when you can hire one that has been through the training. And another thing you need to stop complaining on who works the over time hours at least they are working and taking care of morgan co. I think the sheriffs dept. needs to go on strike, then who are you going to call and what are you going to do. think about that. So everyone needs to stop complaining and the the sheriffs and chief and all the deputies do there job if you think you can do better go apply for a job there

getting ready for the next election. that is why they are trying to get out and be seen. i hate to say it, but it all comes down to politics. not the people of this county. i have been on the inside of elections before, and being seen is part of a plan to get back in office. very sad,but very true. all counties do it.

get a life work for nothing crap u dont spend that much money to get elected how damm much money do u make to think they work for nothing.that seems to be the answer to everything in this county for not doing ur job.the lady that stoled the money in the clerk's office was working for nothing so she helped her self.if i calculated it right she was making about 76000.00 per yr.
