As a counter attack on Sheriff candidate Kenny Snyder, the undersheriff Doug Sipes of Hughes County Oklahoma at a political forum defended the sheriff dept as being timely in its response time to police calls.
Sipes complains that there’s only 2 good computers that he feels need upgrade w/new programing so that they could get information from other agencies. And that the jail needs to sell guns so basement can be cleared out.
The county jail sanitation is a problem, as Sipes mention it needs to be disinfected. Considering that this unsanitary jail is where inmates are housed, there may be health & disease issues. However, Sipes wants to bring in commissary snake food and cut back on the kitchen meals. I would had thought that if he’s going to make inmates live in disease infestation, at least he could allow them to keep their strength up with a nutritious cooked meal to give then a fighting chance of survival. Just saying!!
Regarding his credentials that he feels that qualifies him for job as sheriff is his 23 yrs of law enforcement experience.
The other candidates for Hughes County sheriff were: Kenny Snyder,Todd Hignite and Nolen Grizzle . According to the Oklahoma Sheriff association website, all candidates running for Hughes county sheriff are democrats.
