It makes sense to me that Sheriff Coffey should have appointed qualified people into these high ranking important positions. Take the political backers to dinner, don't give em a gun and badge.

Dave Williams left for reasons not dicussed,Coffey is doing more to keep the PG and DC crap out of Waldorf then any one ever has, he's just not getting any help from the county commissioners.
Thanks Sheriff Coffey

Sheriff Coffey has done a lot for our county. He has kept alot of the crap from DC and PG out of here. When we moved here about 10 years ago our neighborhood was great. It went down hill, kids getting jumped when they get off the bus and doused with gas, kids getting jumped Halloween night for their candy, drug dealers arrested in our family neighborhood, you name it. Since Sheriff Coffey came into office alot of this crap has gone away.

I feel that Dave Williams is correct, "Coffey" should have not allowed un qualified officers come in off the street in those high level positions. Waldorf, still has a whole lot of cleaning up to do. I am a resident and have not seen much that "Coffey" has done. The County does not need the buddy system to fight crime and protect our community. We deserve to have our streets and coummunties patroled 24/7.

Rex Coffey is doing the best he can with what the County Commissioners give him,If you really are a resident then you must be blind not to see how much better all of Charles county ....just not Waldorf.
Sheriff Coffey doesn't hide like others we have had he's right out front dealing with criminal that are all coming into the county from D.C.
