WTF? Can't he make a living working at his ambulance service? He's over-weight and cross eyed! How did he pass any physical for that job?

You MUST have completed a class, pistol qualified, and paperwork to state BEFORE you can work.

Exactly, and he has not completed anything!!!! WR has not had a class in years, the SO is putting one on right now, but he ain't completed anything. This goes to show you that RICHY THATCHER is making some bad choices!!!! Does'nt Sherrie work for Wendell too? HMMMM starting to stink!!!

I have seen so many over weight cops in WR its not funny. I cant imagine how some who are hugh can run fast enough to catch anyone. It should be a LAW that all cops,firemen,medical personel should have a weight limit and should be physically fit to be able to do those jobs!!

Wendell is working "part time" as a reserve. Is not drawing a salary. Strictly volunteer.

I went to school with Wendell for 12 years and as far as being a good guy, he certainly is. But I really have my doubts as to whether or not he has the ability to deal with some of the dangerous situations officers sometimes find themselves in. I am also doubtful that he will ever be able to make certain people take him seriously. It really is a shame because he would be one of the honest good guys. But when you think back to some of the other officers that have been hired, it makes Wendell appear more qualified than a few of the others. He may not be perfect but at least he is honest. (I guess he still is, I haven't talked with him in a few years.) It has been a long time since Hoxie and Walnut Ridge have had really good qualified officers who also kept themselves in good shape physically. I don't think officers like Gene Matthews would have ever allowed his officers look the way they do now. It is like an era gone by.

You know, Wendell Jones is a great man and is very devoted to his town, county, and family. He takes pride in what he does! He is a very humble person. You people who want to get on here and bad mouth good people like him need to shut up and find something better to do. Come to think of it, he has probably saved the life of someone you know! He has to go home every night with the horrible things he sees everyday at work and that weighs on a person and can get the best of people at times, but he stays professional and does a great job! I will support Wendell in whatever he does. I don't know if he is volunteering or not but if he is, then good for him. We need more people like him to volunteer instead of sitting on the internet bad mouthing people all day!

I don't know about Wendell's ability to be a cop but he is a honest, do anything for you kind of man. I am sure with proper training he would be just as good as any other cop. In fact he would be brtter than some, especially where integrity is concerned. If he is volunteering and helping out then good for him. He might be able to teach some of the others some morals and values. Go Wendy Go!!!

I agree wendell is a good guy. The fact is that richy is to stupid to be a cop and has Wendell out acting like a cop when he should know better.
I hope Wendell gives me a ticket the judge will love this.

What exactly does Wendell do? Are there volunteer cops? That just could not be safe. Why can't the Mayor stop whatever they are up to? Does he not have any say about what goes on as far as department heads over the cops? Wendell has always been a good guy --but a volunteer cop? Sure don't understand what they are try1ng to do.

If I didn't know better I would think Blackburn was the chief again. He was a poor choice to.

I would much rather see Wendell in a patrol car as Sherri. But then again it wouldn't surprise me at all to see her patrolling since she feels that she has to have her foot in every door.
