Good points sweetpotato. There is definately a HUGE difference between the Police Department and Sheriff's office coming from me as a citizen just from daily observations. They seem to be alot more advanced and up to date on everything. I don't know if their standards are different or what. A few months ago my fiance and I were at the QT and saw a deputy pull up in a marked patrol car during they day time and we watched as he had to use the top of the door and the roof of the car to pry himself out out of the car. Please don't take this the wrong way but he was not in any sort of physical ability to help a citizen that was in need of immediate help, protect himself in the course of a physical altercation or another law enforcement officer that needed physical help. I'm thankful that you are willing to do the job and appreciate all of you. We noticed while inside the store that the deputy was inside fixing him a fountain drink as were we. He was literally breathing heavily from walking inside. I looked over and he was wearing Sergeant stripes which would tell me he was some sort of supervisior. The SHERIFF is the one responsible for seeing that his employees are fit for the job and capable of protecting theirself and the citizens of Newton County. It's important for officers to be able to perform physically demanding task and be able ot be mobile to protect us. And by the way guesswho83 I have seen several articles within the newspaper where Mr. Brown has not done such a great job abiding by the budget thats in place. However I have seen some new cars driving down the roads lately and the Sheriff driving a very nice black Chevrolet Tahoe. Humm I wonder how often the employess get a raise over there. It's time for a change! Someone from the outside needs to take that office and get it brought to the 21st century. I think based on Capt. Bradfords experience and knowledge that he is the man for the job. I know that he will clean up the streets of Newton County. He was difinately doing it when he was over the drug unit. Maybe thats why we only see articles about SIU once overy few months now.
This is great news!!!! Capt. Bradford is well known in the community for being the one to call if you have a problem within your neighborhood that needs to be addressed. I have seen first hand that he will see that its addressed quickly and put to a stop. He has always presented himself professional in caring for the need of our community. He is constantly in the paper for terminating drug houses and dealers and other crimes and has proven that he knows how to enforce the law to the fullest. It will be great to have a leader of this caliber as our Sheriff with the number of violent crimes that we have seen within Newton County over the last five years. I look forward to Philip Bradford becoming our Sheriff and watching the crime rates decrease. You have my vote! God bless!
