Out with the old - In with the new

Folks, several sheriffs lost their bids for reelection during the primaries.  For good cause.  The citizens are sick and tired of these sheriffs who take inmate food funds for their own personal gain and ignore feeding the inmates nutritional meals.  We only know a very limited amount about the money that has been taken but we dare say that over the years it has been millions and millions of dollars.

Many of the people have made comments that there is no way sheriffs have taken millions of dollars.  Folks, it's easy.  What we are not hearing about is some of these other funds such as pistol permit, posse funds, discretionary funds, federal food funds, and more.  The sheriffs have at their discretion multiple accounts.

What does it take to change the laws?  Many lawmakers cater to the special interest groups.  Lawmakers are elected to represent the citizens.  Change the inmate food laws if not for the citizens for your own conscience.

While we are on a roll it seems that when law enforcement gets into trouble, Democrat law enforcement and political figures fare far worse than the Republicans.  The only Republican who has faced serious time in the past few years was Hubbard and the last we heard he hasn't gone to jail yet.

As we said in a previous blog.  Times are a changing.

                                          Tim Sandlin            Jerry Williams

Lawrence County Sheriff - elect Max Sanders announces Chief Deputy and Chief Jailer.


Tim Sandlin, Chief Deputy: I am proud to announce my choice for Chief Deputy of Lawrence County (LR2). 

Tim Sandlin is 45 years old. He is married with one daughter and two stepdaughters. Mr. Sandlin 
grew up in the Caddo Community and will reside in the Hatton Community.

He graduated from East Lawrence High School in 1991. He graduated from Calhoun Community College with an associates of applied science in law enforcement.

Mr. Sandlin is a 1993 graduate of the University of Alabama Law Enforcement Academy. He has over 25 years of Law enforcement experience. He is currently assigned as a Special Agent with the State Bureau of Investigation. His focus is in narcotics and is assigned as a Special Deputy United States Marshal with the Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force.

His career is impeccable and why he is my choice to help us move this department forward.

As promised this is one area I will save the county money. Mr. Sandlin will be retired and will not draw a full Captain or Chief’s salary. In fact, his salary will be less than that of a full time Deputy, saving the county tens of thousands of dollars annually. I have a conservative plan that saves money and builds a strong team. 

Jerry Williams, Chief Jailer:  I am proud to announce my choice for Chief Jailer of the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department. 

Jerry Williams is 49 years old. Mr. Williams and his wife have five children and three grandchildren. Mr. Williams and his family reside in Moulton. 

Mr. Williams grew up in the Elkmont community before moving to Moulton. 

Mr. Williams is a 1987 graduate of Elkmont High School. He began his law enforcement career in 1999 at the Limestone County Sheriff’s Department as a Deputy/ Corrections Officer. He graduated from the Jefferson County Law Enforcement Training Center’s Corrections Academy.

Mr. Williams is currently serving as a Corrections Officer for the Alabama Department of Corrections. He has served in that capacity for 15 years. During that time he has received multiple awards, including nominations for Officer of the Year. Over the course of his career, he has participated in a wide variety of training and has received multiple certifications from the Department of Homeland Security.

Mr. Williams is dedicated to serving and protecting our community. He will help us move this department forward. I look forward to his service.

We are building a strong team.

  1. Mr. Sanders will do a good job and is putting together a good staff. There were good people in the current administration that just got caught up in the failed leadership of Gene Mitchell. Some will stay and some will go, they are still good people. We wish them well. We wish Mr. Sanders the best with his administration.

  2. Boy I hope there is no fraud here at the end. With folks cutting out left and right, I hope someone is minding the store to make sure there is no fraud. I know we don't need any fraud. Fraud is not good. If someone is not on top of things it is easy to have fraud. The last thing we need in the s.o. is fraud. Aren't the two brothers suppose to be leaving at the end of December? No fraud, no fraud, no fraud, no fraud. Boy I just hope there is no fraud with all this swapping going on.

  6. The way gene mitchell is handling his last few months and the transition is so sad, he needs to take a lesson frim the man he was intensity jealous of because he was so much smarter than him. He handled the end of a term and transition absolutely perfectly. He could teach gene a thing or two about how to do things the right way, but he of course was a real law enforcement professional. "PC"!

  11. What is it 3 weeks till the mitchell brothers cut out? I heard the reason they are leaving at the end of december is so they can get their first county retirement check January 1st. If they stay till January 15th they will have to go two weeks till Feb 1st before they can get a county retirement check and don't want to have to go that two weeks without a check.
