Chesco Sheriff Cuts Standards To Draw Deputies — The Chester County Pa Sheriff Department has a designed a dingbat schemed to end its dearth of deputies.
Undesired publicity leads to desperate measures, we guess.
No longer will those seeking employment for this important law enforcement job need to meet the same certification level as municipal police officers.
Yes, Chesco voters your new deputies will now be more likely to be grifters, incompetent, lazy or violent.
Actually, all of the above.
The department is down at least 40 deputies.
When Bunny Welsh was sheriff just four years ago the department was fully staffed and highly admired.
When Democrat Fredda Maddox took over things went south. Morale collapsed by all accounts. Nobody wanted to work for her. There was bullying and partisanship.
Fredda is stepping down as sheriff and hoping to step up to Common Pleas Court judge this Nov. 7.
She has hand-picked her assistant Kevin Dykes to be her replacement. He’s said to be just as bad if not worse.
Running against him is Republican Roy Kofroth.
Chesco, you have a choice.
