(WSBTV)   Police Chief sends a nastygram to the Sheriff, berating him for hiring all of the people that he fires. The Sheriff claims Police Chief hires all the people that HE fires. Sounds like working at either place would provide excellent job security   (wsbtv.com) divider line 37

What I was thinking. Sounds like the cops and the deputies are all incompetent and unable to keep a job. Need to fire the Chief and the Sherriff, torch the buildings, salt the earth and start over from the beginning.

So if I work there just get uniforms for both places.

Simple solution: Each one draws their Tasers and .45's and at the same time! If both die, we WIN!

There's a difference between a police chief and a sheriff? I thought it was just a different name for the same thing, like a po' boy and a grinder.

My friends and I did this with a few girlfriends in high school. It worked out well for us.

From what I've seen, police departments tend to prefer bullies, and sheriff's departments tend to prefer the tacticool assholes that shoot first and ask questions later.

Sherriffs also tend to get the menial jobs, like serving warrants.

Just don't mix them up or you might get fired... so that you don't have to go home and change.

I didn't think cops could get fired. Or do they mean "the place they hang out when they are on paid leave for murdering someone."

It's failr common practice for small departments to hire officers that have "washed out" of field training at larger departments. Training is expensive, and once a person completes their academy training and receives certification as an officer, the small department doesn't have to send him back through an academy. However, if an officer is terminated for violating someone's rights it's irresponsible and creates great liability for the hiring agency. I assume both of these agencies have tight budgets and are trying to save money by hiring people that are already certified. One lawsuit can wipe out any savings they've acheived though. A chief that would hire someone who violated someone's rights is an idiot to boot.

The Sheriff is usually elected by the people.
The Police Chief is usually appointed by the City Manager/Mayor or other CEO of said organisation.

FTFA: Kimbrough recently hired three officers Porter fired. In the letter, Porter said the officers violated a citizen's civil rights and violated other departmental policies. Porter said Kimbrough never came by the department to check the officer's files.

You know how I know no one read the article?

Our local police department and sheriffs have a low grade turf war going on. The police nailed a deputy speeding in a school zone and didn't give him professional courtesy so now their are incidents. Some funny like Super Troopers, some not so funny.

/my personal favorite was the unmarked sheriff trying to run a speed trap
//with a marked police car sitting behind him, lights on, and "doing paperwork"
/so you saw the speed trap long before you reached it

Hey - why are you saying there's no difference between those two sandwiches? Where I live, you'd better not mix up the two. Like grilling and barbecuing.

/CSB: Friend in California went to someone's house for "barbecue," and couldn't understand why they looked at him funny when he asked for sauce. He had to explain that what they were doing was "grilling," not barbecuing.

Except this is part of the metro Atlanta area, so I doubt they are too worried about tight budgets.

I knew before I clicked that it would be Clayton County.

You're right about the difference -- BUT. In most counties, the police do the policing and the sheriff runs the jail and securorizes the courts.

In Clayton County they both do the same things. Getting rid of the sheriff or police chief isn't going to end the turf war there. In the county to the south, it took federal intervention a decade or two ago.

Im not really sure what to think here... I've known a number of cops, and from what I understand, the only cops who are actually fired are ones who ended up on someones shiat list. Anyone else gets to resign.

So with that in mind, it makes a lot of sense to re-hire someone that got shiat canned by another department, because its more likely to have been due to political crap than actual misconduct.

Because too many people turn their personal safety over to someone else. The police should be backup; their individual is their own first, best line of defense.

The county I grew up in had a sheriff recall election, (it succeeded, he was crookeder than a dog's hind leg) in the late '70s. The newspaper I worked for was being harassed by the sheriff deputies for reporting on it. They were pulling over our motor route drivers in remote areas and beating them up, and throwing rocks through our large front window. It all ended when a CHP officer came upon a sheriffs deputy beating a handcuffed motor route driver, and drew his gun, and arrested the deputy, and amazingly got a conviction.

/CHP: the only officers I'd trust with a plugged nickel
