Vote NO To Save Your Sheriff's Department In St. Charles County

Before you go to the polls, make sure you know how this power grab, by the County Executive, will change forever whom law enforcement will be accountable to. HINT: It won't be you.

Vote NO on the Law Enforcement Question on the St. Charles Ballot

Every St. Charles County resident should know the facts about the proposed ballot initiative (County Charter Law Enforcement) that will forever change the rights of the people to choose how law enforcement is run in their county.

The Council put this initiative on the ballot without doing any financial due diligence. Costs are unknown and would likely be more than estimated costs from proponents, as it will create an additional bureaucratic department within our county government.

It will not provide additional protection for county citizens. The remaining diminished Sheriff’s department will not have law enforcement powers/duties.

It will take away your right to vote for your law enforcement (Sheriff). A Police Chief will be appointed by and answer only to the County Executive.

There is no detailed plan for the new department’s structure, including specifications for the new position’s (Police Chief) job qualifications.

This action will bloat bureaucracy in our county government. Bloated bureaucracy means MORE TAXES!!! VOTE NO!!!
