Sheriffs are by and large good boys; no one seems to know why voters settle for non educated non professionals for a sheriff, yet police chiefs need to have a masters degree nowadays for even the smallest fewest red lights cities. We will all be better off with county police chiefs and letting the sheriff run the jails, serve papers, and manage courtroom security IMO
No, what I think they are saying is the city manager and HR person would rather farm this hire out. The problem I have is this firm might conduct what they call an open search. But I bet they will end up hiring someone from within the department and still get paid quite well. My hope is they actually do get someone from somewhere else; not a good ole boy. How about some new blood for Southern Pines in more than the PD?
I now stand fully warned of the preferences you desire in the next police chief. I am none of the things or an advocate for any of the concerns you have. I am just going to be one of many applicants for the position and someone that has the credentials to be seriously considered I hope. My application is fuled by a desire to do the right thing and an allure for the Souhtern Pines area. I will be glad to give you my generic background information in confidence, if you provide a means for me to do. I am one of the good guys; not a good ole boy or insider.
I hope the town looks outside since I will be applying for the position. Sometimes a fresh face from outside of the agency, the county, and the community is a very good thing. And if I am hired, my wife won't be in the picture.
