Knight has falling out with police chiefs

Lee Williams wrote:Tom Knight met with the Sarasota, Venice, North Port and Longboat Key chiefs, and presented a Memorandum of Understanding for them to read and sign.

Acting on the advice of attorneys, the Sarasota Police Department rejected the sheriff's proposal.

At Knight's order, all of the Sarasota Police officers who were cross-deputized had to surrender their deputy sheriff ID cards.

Sarasota City Attorney Robert Fournier, who advised Sarasota Chief of Police Mikel Holloway to reject the sheriff's proposal, said the new requirements would strip the city of its sovereign immunity and expose it to unlimited liability, while insulating the sheriff and his staff from the threat of lawsuits.

One requirement is for the city officers to promise not to sue the sheriff or the department, a sort of blanket immunity regardless of the cause or circumstances, even if an officer is injured by a deputy sheriff.

It's not a falling out. He just wants to reduce liability for himself and the agency.

TK is regaining control of the agency. BB allowed any and everyone to do whatever they wanted - he didnt care. I applaud the Sheriff for digging deep to rope in all of the "forgotten" issues at the SSO.

Knight first whipped SSO employees. Next the police chiefs will be whipped. After that the municipal police officers will have their turn to be whipped. Unless of course something backfires.

You answered your own question . Time to update the policy. Not a big deal. Witht he city of Sarasota liability issues. How do you think we now have all the details in the city of Sarasota. Simple. For the same reason. Good for the Sheriff. The easy way is to do it have the Legisltaure make all Correctional and LEO officers like California,New York etc. Make everyone a State Peace Officer with statewide autority and have each agency draw its own policy. The policy would be regarding outside of its governed agency area of responsiblity.

SSO employees may choose to accept the beatings, but the chiefs aren't employed by TK, so the chiefs don't have to accept his beatings. The municipal officers also don't have to accept the beatings. ;)
