Sheriff should report

October 12, 2012
Just curious ... I notice in the City Of Bonners Ferry City Council minutes that the Chief of Police and the Fire Chief report to the council the crime, traffic and fire calls. Yet in the County Commission meetings no such report is provided to the Commissioners or taxpayers by the Sheriff.

Of course one may claim that crime logs are posted in and in the Herald.

Just seems to me that an official report should be made to the Commissioners and taxpayers at least once a month and entered into the minutes. Hopefully, this will also occur for the newly formed ambulance service.

Now some of you may think the Sheriff has better things to do than write a report. Well, since the installation of the Swift Justice system all that information is at the touch of a button. Go to and be amazed.
