  • Hello from MN - suppose I should be polite

    and introduce myself. I seem to have just jumped in with both feet in a few forums.
    My name is Sonya.
    I'm a deputy sheriff for a metropolitan area in Minnesota, the only (I'm told) county in the state with no rural areas, so we are responsible for seven contract cities. The best of both worlds, one could suppose, a city cop with a county patch.
    I'm in my 13th year with the county. I spent several years working in the jail, a few in the courts, and am now happily patrolling.
    Pleased to make your acquaintance!

      Metro

      A Metro agency really does simplify matters and can run like a well-oiled machine, providing that senior leadership is on the ball. Locally, there are some smaller municipal agencies that have difficulty handling their jurisdictions, but get angry when their residents plead to the county sheriff for patrols and service. The whole thing turns into an ego contest between agencies, which is a poor way to serve the community.

        Thanks for the welcome Going Loud.
        UCHM1 - I agree and have seen that issue played out. We have both situations - a large portion of the county is contract patrol, but there are several cities with independent police departments. For the most part, we have an amiable relationship with them, there are a couple, however, that would love to see the county disappear. Same kind of "my city, you can't be here" mentality that doesn't benefit anyone.

            The 800mhtz radios and new CAD/laptop system is making things interesting.
