1. How would you collaborate with other jurisdictions of the county to alleviate the problems of crime and violence countywide?

Communication in Law Enforcement is vital to success. I would schedule monthly leadership meetings with all law enforcement agencies in the county as well as making sure there is an open line of communications between shift supervisors and all officers. Beyond that, working with the Prosecutor's office, Probation and Parole is essential to being successful.

2. What procedures do you believe could be improved in the handling of domestic violence and child abuse cases?

We have to stay in tune with our domestic boone county sheriff twitter family violence partners such as YWCA Resolve Family Abuse, Cornerstone Family Interventions, available shelters and other resources. Partnering with these programs is critical to improvement and is a great compliment in addition to maintaining specially trained deputies in this field.

3. What would you do to combat drug problems in the county?

We must be harsh on the legitimate dealers and make sure there is treatment available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week for people struggling with addiction. We will develop and maintain partnerships with the school system for early drug education and partner with parents for early drug intervention. Make sure reentry packets are available to released inmates.

4. Would you increase the size of the law-enforcement force?

Yes! The Sheriff's Department is responsible for so much more than just answering 911 calls.

5. What are the three most pressing issues for the sheriff’s department?

Manpower, Equipment and Vehicles. Maintaining police coverage 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, providing 2 full time bailiffs, a school resource officer, a drug investigator, running the home confinement program, watching inmates for court, serving process, handling mental hygeines and domestic violence petitions is very difficult with 17 sworn officers. We have cruisers with over 200k miles.

6. What is the most pressing concern and solution for tax collections?

Staffing, the office has been cut to 3 employees. It is impossible for them to adequately staff the office and be proactive in their tax collections. As Sheriff, I would be trained and would help when needed in the Tax Office and also work on creative ways to collect delinquencies. This would also help reopen the Racine collection point monthly.

Citing �corrupt political atmosphere,� Alpena mayor says he�ll resign if council approves detachments

By Scott Loftis

CarrollCountyNews@cox-internet.com

Alpena Mayor Theron McCammond said last week that he will resign his position if the city council goes along with his request to detach two pieces of property � his own and the site of the Top Rock restaurant on U.S. Highway 62.

McCammond spoke to media members on Tuesday, July 21, on the edge of a pasture on his property off U.S. 412. He described what he called �a corrupt political atmosphere� in the town of roughly 400 people that straddles the Carroll/Boone county line.

McCammond, 50, was elected mayor in November 2018, defeating longtime incumbent Bobbie Bailey. He took office in January 2019 and has feuded with the city council for nearly his entire time in office.

A major point of contention has been mileage reimbursements issued from 2014 to 2019 to district court clerk Phyllis McNair, who also served as the water department clerk before McCammond fired her from that position.

An Arkansas Legislative Audit report said McNair was overpaid by $3,715 for 266 duplicate mileage reimbursements from Jan. 1, 2014, to March 31, 2019. Boone county sheriff twitter said Tuesday that McNair billed both the water department and the boone county sheriff twitter court for mileage. According to McCammond, McNair would frequently bill both department for 30-mile round trips to Harrison to make bank deposits when she actually made the deposits in Green Forest, an 18-mile round trip.

After boone county sheriff twitter audit findings were revealed, prosecuting attorney David Ethredge announced that no criminal charges would be filed. Ethredge�s district includes Boone, Marion, Baxter and Newton counties. The Boone County Sheriff�s Office also looked into the matter and declined to pursue charges. McCammond said both Bailey and a Boone County district court judge told an investigator that McNair had requested reimbursement for mileage as they had instructed her.

McNair said Monday that she spoke willingly with investigators from the sheriff�s office who found no basis for charges. She said McCammond refused to accept that outcome.

�They dropped the case,� she said. �He wouldn�t drop it.�

McNair said she did nothing wrong.

�He�s made some serious accusations against me and other people,� she said. �There was nothing there. I itemized everything for everybody to see. I have nothing to hide.�

McNair said McCammond has refused to let the issue go.

�He still brings all that up and talks about corruption and everything else,� she said. �There was never any corruption. Never.�

City council member A.J. Womack, who said he joined the council about eight months after McCammond took office, defended McNair.

�The previous administration � the previous mayor and the judge � told her to file her paperwork that way,� Womack said. �It wasn�t even her decision to file the paperwork that way. She was filing her mileage the exact way that both of boone county sheriff twitter bosses were telling her to do it.�

Womack, the great-grandson of the former mayor, said a petition was circulated seeking to recall McCammond as mayor. He said county clerks in both Carroll and Boone counties are working to verify the signatures.

�More than likely it will be on the ballot in November to remove him as mayor,� Womack said.

One of his major criticisms of McCammond, Womack said, was that he didn�t try to resolve the mileage issue directly with McNair or bring it to the city council�s attention.

�Instead of talking to Phyllis, instead of talking to council, the previous mayor or the judge to figure out why the paperwork was being done that way, he went directly to the prosecuting attorney and the sheriff�s department.�

McCammond liberty savings bank routing number he felt obligated to report the situation to law enforcement. If the city council passes the detachment ordinances, he said, he will give up his position.

�Once those ordinances are passed and in effect, and both my property and Mary Jones� property are detached from the town of Alpena, I will tender my resignation as mayor of Alpena effective upon that legislation,� McCammond said, referring to the owner of the Top Rock property. �It has become apparent that my faith, my family and my financial well-being boone county sheriff twitter more important to me than fighting a corrupt syndication by myself. To the people of Alpena who voted for me, I want to apologize to you for my failures. I did not anticipate the blatant corruption and nepotism that the town government in Alpena holds.�

If the ordinances are not passed, McCammond said, he will not resign.

Womack said he will not vote in favor of the detachment ordinances, boone county sheriff twitter he said he could not speak for other council members.

�It would have been one thing if he came and talked to the council about it and told us what he wants to do,� Womack said. �Instead he�s holding the council hostage. He doesn�t care about democracy.�

Jones could not be reached for comment.
