CONTINUED TO PAGE 7 Scott Torres for Sheriff Reported Crime in Ottawa County is Increasing, yet The Sheriff's Department's Arrest Rate is Decreasing The Sheriff's Department is receiving more calls from Ottawa County Citizens reporting crime, but the Sheriff's Department's arrest rate is low. With a growing local population, our Sheriff's Department must improve and simply perform its job! Our Sheriffs Department is just not giving us what we pay for Reported crimes are often not investigated and often Sheriffs Deputies do not even respond to calls. They are simply ignored. When crimes are investigated, the Sheriff's Department routinely does not follow proper investigative procedures resulting in criminals going free. The Sheriff just does not set a good example for his Deputies and he does not provide them with proper leadership. The overall performance of the Ottawa County Sheriffs Department is poor! The conviction rate is low due to the Sheriffs Department's poor investigative and evidence collection practices, poor work habits, and a simple lack order and discipline. The Sheriff and his Deputies are given raises regardless of how well they perforrn their jobs so they do the minimum to get by! When we elected Mr. Kenneth White as Sheriff, he promised to do a good job. He has not kept his promise. He has let his Deputies become arrogant and lazy. That's not the behavior we need or want. Our county is small but we are growing. We need a Sheriff who is prepared for our growth. Scott Torres will bring Ottawa County the Sheriffs Department our Citizens deserve and will be proud of. It will be a hard working and community oriented professional department that is responsible to the Citizens of Ottawa County. He will establish proper standards, policies and procedures, and he will restore integrity to the Ottawa County Sheriff's Department. We need a change - a Sheriffs Department that Does its Job. Scott Torres will bring us that Change! Political advertisement paid tor by the Committee to elect Scott Torres, Sheriff.
