By no means am I taking anything away from or discrediting anyonone in house at Aberdeen P.D., but many times agencies and cities fall into the whole "If it aint broke, dont fix it mentality". Sometimes some new blood from the outside can bring in fresh ideas and some welcomed changes.
I commend Sheriff Carter on a long successful career. He was a cop's cop. A real law enforcement officer who started from the bottom and pretty much did it all. He knew what it was like to work long hours, he lived the days when deputies had to work with substandard equipment and training, he's worked rotating shifts and been away from his family during holidays and birthdays, im sure just like the rest of us, he's been cussed out on traffic stops and called every name in the book. In my opinion, the Office of the Sheriff needs people like Sheriff Carter who have lived it. A Sheriff who's got enough work ethic and cares about his people enough to come up on the radio and check on his people if he's out and about and hears a hot call come out. My hats off to Sheriff Carter and congratulations on your retirement.
Absolutely unrelated to this article, but I couldnt resist including my comment in reference to the seven new officers at Carthage P.D. article. Commenting has been disabled and I can only imagine why. Seems to me CPD has a longstanding habit and tradition of hiring and / or rehiring officers that cant seem to make it somewhere else. Here's a clue: If they cant make it or have issues with one Law Enforcement agency, or in some cases, agencies, there's usually a pretty good reason why. Just sayin.
I think the Carthage Town Board needs to be more concerned with getting the Police Department fully staffed and with quality personnel.
"Would I purposely, knowingly, and willfully drive through a school zone at that speed"? Why not? You purposely, knowingly, and willfully set your cruise control 7 mph over the 55 mph speed limit that you were in prior. If people arent from the area, then I guess they need to pay a little closer attention to what they're doing. You are most likely to be that citizen who will complain to local law enforcement about cars speeding through his neighborhood and want more done about it, but when YOU get a ticket, then it's a speed trap.
Good point blue1. What they thought was an empire, went to hell in a hand basket after Chief Goodnight left.
I agree with Toda - "LockSmiths are bonded and have insurance to cover damages to vehicles...best call yet".
As far as the naysayers who want to discredit law enforcement, officers operate the way the department S.O.P. reads. Many agencies are shying away from unlocking vehicles unless there is a small child or animal locked inside. In some cases, if the car is running with the keys locked inside. Surprisingly, many people will ask for assistance in unlocking their vehicle, and then they want to hold the city / county responsible when their paint gets chipped or there is some electrical damage.
Spot on, blue1.
I wont go into specifics, but yes, they were already having encounters with law enforcement that early in life.
Spot on. On average, you have the same thirty percent of offenders committing seventy percent of the crime.
