Oneandoneonly, I don't think JB likes you much for pointing out publicly a bad cop. Thank you for taking the time, reading a hard to read list and putting a date with a time so JB can track exactly who what when and where. It is sad to see how little JB cares about this issue. It may not important to most people, but every tow that this crooked cop gives the out of tow company takes away from the local ones that pay taxes here, has kids in the local schools and supports life in Pulaski county.
The situation that reminded me of this is your officer 337 stopped a vehicle for something and asked the dispatcher for a tow truck. After a few minutes delay, the dispatcher stated that Rothmundís would be on their way. BTW Matrsnot, this was not a owner request.
I am more of a george cloony girl myself!
Not happening now. We ran into problems and it has fallen by the wayside. Still think it will work some day.
What we did without the rotation was use the closest service at the dispatcher's discretion when a deputy called for a tow truck without requesting a certain company. It all worked out because each dispatcher knew how to get ahold of the different tow companies and had our own preferences from our own experiences having to call a service in a certain part of the County or a certain time of day. I know that on most 3-11pm shifts back then I could get a tow truck on our scene usually within 10-15 minutes from my call and we in dispatch never had an issue with this practice. The only ones with issues were the tow companies with lousy service.
Looks like Pulaski County voters messed up. The sheriff needs to be person that can be trusted without question and Mr Long is not that person. If he can't even do the right thing for his wife and family, why should we trust him as sheriff? I would be willing to bet that allot of people voted for him because of his name, not because he was a good person. Too bad this didn't come out till after the primary...
Mr Long, I have asked you a question and you have not responded. My question can almost be construed as a question of if you wouldn't be taking kickbacks like the current sheriff is. (Which it appears he is because he has never provide truth that he isn't) Also you have not had a response to this issue. Again, if its not true, come on here and publicly denies the allegations. Your silence makes us assumes that you are guilty...
Sorry Edward. An impossibility. I went Republican.
You get what you pay for.
oneandoneonly has part of it correct
My vote is going to be for JOHNNY BURGESS. He has more than answered every question that has been asked. He is also supporter of using local business when ever possible and that should be a vote getter from every business owner in the county by itself. He also has current, first hand knowledge of the day to day workings and problems of the sheriff's department. This alone will make a seemless transition to the new sheriff. JOHNNY BURGESS has a well rounded education in all aspects. It appears that he would be knowledgeable is just about any situation that he would come up to while being sheriff. Without an in depth look, it would appear he is the most educated person to run as sheriff for Pulaski County. In this day and age when the criminals seem to be 2 steps ahead of the law, I can see that this will come in real handy. As for work ethic JOHNNY BURGESS would appear to be second to no one. The fact that he is volunteering for THE SHERIFFS OFFICE WHILE WORKING FULL TIME AND RUNNING FOR OFFICE and not just sitting on his tail at the local gas station or his house equals 2 thumbs up in my book. Overall JOHNNY BURGESS appears to be the best person to lead us at the sheriff department for the next 4 years...
AND JOHNNY BURGESS HAS PROVEN HIMSELF AT WORKING WELL WITH COWORKERS AND THE PUBLIC NOT JUST ORDERING AROUND MILITARY PEOPLE.

KY-3 had out sheriff as JB Roberts.
3. If I do not find a problem I will be back to say so and to thank the people who witheld vital information that allowed the "crooked deputy" to skate by.
There is only 2 people between JB and the dispatcher so his problem should be really easy to find. If that he wants to find it...
I was just told the event went well tonight. They are expecting even better tommorow night.. Go support it..
This is not what I had asked... Amounts paid without actual descriptions of what was done does not help. Example say Poor Boys tow was from Rolla and Rothmundís was from Waynesville, of course Rothmundís tows will be cheaper...
Since we are listing tows, 1) What is the current list for this year and 2) How many times have you called each tow company to do impound tows for both 2011 and 2012?
I want to know---Have you asked local (Pulaski County) tow companies to price match the tows that you are paying a Laclede County business to do?
Don't look too far down the deputy ladder for your issue. I bet a good review of their financial records would yield interesting results.
And yes I have had a discussion with a wrecker driver who vowed to match Rothmundís prices for our department business.
If as you say so other company has agreed to match rates, why don't you use them?
I prefer to spend the money locally but in all fairness it truly depends on the amount of savings. The department operates on a minimal budget so we do have to watch our money closely but the bottom line is I will spend every dime I feasibly can in the county to support our local business owners.
Answer to Question 3
Pulaski County Sheriffís Office Wrecker Bills 2011
1. On 1-31-2011 Poor Boy Wrecker $75.00
2. On 3-17-2011 C&C Towing $45.00
3. On 3-24-2011 Poor Boy Wrecker $65.00
4. On 8-11-2011 Poor Boy Wrecker $125.00
5. On 10-6-2011 Rothmundís Wrecker 2 cars $85.00
6. On 10-20-2011 Jacks Wrecker $165.00
7. On 11-3-2011 Rothmundís Wrecker 2 cars $60.00
3) A) First, Rothmunds is a Laclede county business, they do business here, but they are not headquartered here. Second, I can't believe no wrecker service from inside the county will match Rothmunds rates... Have you asked? I could find, in the phone book, 8 (headquartered here) Pulaski County tow companies. None of the 8 would match or beat Rothmunds' rates?
First thank you for the PM. Your name is safe with me and I will not post your name or tell JT. Second I owe you an apology, your first post caught me after a rough day and I responded a little more sharply than I needed to. As to the 5 stolen vehicles that one day, the Army used their own wrecker, Road and Bridge came and got their vehicle, and Poor Boys Auto Salvage came and got the other 3 at the same location. I understand that Poor Boys charged one tow $800.00 but I am also told it took them over 5 hours to get that car out of the woods so that is not a bad price. No it is not a high price, I well know from past experience that if it took over 5 hours in that heat then it was an SOB of a wrecker call. One wrecker I know adds a $150.00 charge if you try to pick up your car without an appointment. Storage fees vary a lot. So in the end there is a lot that can go into a wrecker bill.
So with high wrecker bills a definite possibility my policy is for the PCSD to make the decision on who picks up the car as a last resort. Vehicle owner or person in control gets first pick. If it can be safely left where it is then leave it. If it has to be moved and there is nobody else to make the call then we will pick. Keeping all wrecker drivers happy with the number of calls they get is sort of like herding cats. Never has seemed to work out no matter what we do.
Is this a trap? Do you know of a candidate who shoped elsewhere?
The Sheriffís View #28 for the week of July 9 through 13, 2012.
Speaking of cars I sent out a news release on our brush with fame and the five stolen cars we recovered in just one day. Talk about busy one deputy had to come back to the office and pick up more tow sheets. But then again he got three stolen cars in the same patch of woods.
1 and only 1
Thank you for all of the praise on the fine work that we have recently done that was also pointed out in the article. As to your gripes;
1. Fault, do not believe the Trooper figured it out either.
2. Car outside of county; we have cars outside of the county every day on inmate transports, investigations and so forth. In this case the deputy lives close to the wreck scene. Sad but true considering our low pay and lack of a good employee benefit package we are sometimes forced to hire somebody who lives outside of the county.
3. Rothmounds does business in both Laclede and Pulaski County. They haul our cars for the lowest cost of any local wrecker, including free. As long as my auto expense budget is peanuts I will use the cheap cost wrecker. If you want to bitch about Pulaski County tax dollars being spent outside of the county please tell me what steps you have taken to complain about the $3.5 million spent housing our inmates outside of the county since 2001.
4. Fault punishment; catch 22 without a fault finding how can I take action? The deputy in question has been one of our best. Yes I have spoken to him an this driving issue so if you want to call that a reprimand then do so.
My policy on all issues will be in effect for another 178 days. Then you will have a new sheriff to bitch about. Who knows maybe the new guy will be brave or stupid enough to come on this web site like I do and answer the bitches.
Have a nice day.
Sheriff J. B. King (my real name what is yours?)
