MCSD take-home cars - how many?
June 27, 2013
Cal Skinner filed a Freedom of Information Act request recently with the McHenry County Sheriff's Department for information about the take-home cards.
I didn't count the number of employees on the list with take-home cars, but one writer of a comment mentioned 109.
You'd think we are NYPD! We're not.
You can read Cal's article on McHenry County Blog. Be sure to read the Comments. Skim down the list. You'll see the Business Manager has a car. Why? Does she even live in McHenry County? Does the County pay for her gas to commute from/to Boone County or Winnebago County?
It would be interesting to know how many times deputies have been called out "after hours" and have needed to go screaming (lights and siren, I mean) from their homes to a crime scene. How many in the past year? Two years? Any? Ever?
Dep. Fringer is on the list. Has her car been returned to the parking lot while she is out on FMLA?
And how about Lt. Carlson? Has his car been returned to the lot, while he is recuperating from the leg injury he suffered when he wrecked his personal car on June 6?
I think MCSD's policy is, if the deputy is off for more than three days or on vacation or medical leave, the Department car goes back to the lot for use by someone else. Is that how the program is supposed to work?
