Comments: Maybe the on duty officer was on his way to another call. Why assume that they don't care enough to stop. Really? They are in the job to help people, not ignore them. You don't know the situation they were in. I bet you are someone that used to work at MPD.

Comments: Thank you Larry for the info on the roundabout. It will be interesting to see the results as 90% of Madison's drivers can't comprehend what a Stop sign is.
Take for example the intersection of State St. and Green Road. There has been so many bad examples of people not knowing(or they just don't care) who has the right-of-way at that four way stop. Madison alone, has too many that don't know the traffic rules. As already mentioned, many don't care, so the roundabout will be an interesting adventure. Surely there will be active cameras positioned there to settle future legal disputes.

Comments: Pete, I don't know how many cars there are, but the new Sheriff's department photo on facebook shows 14 officers in patrol uniform plus the sheriff himself. With like 39 or 40 total employees in the photo.. I know that's a lot more people than I would have guess worked there.. I don't think they have nearly that many cars.. what, maybe 10/14??

Comments: I really appreciate the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department and the fact that their officers will stop to help someone in need even when they are off duty. A few weeks ago I was broke down on Michigan road and saw Chief Thurston drive on by and turn to go to his house without stopping. Then an on duty officer drove on by as well without stopping. Then a off duty Sheriff's Deputy stopped to check on me and waited until my husband arrived and got my car running again. Thank you to the Sheriff's Department.

Comments: Really--ask the sheriff how many full time road deputies he has and then ask how many vehicles the dept. has. That number will answer your question.

Comments: The Sheriff's Dept has a fleet of vehicles. Sheriff Wallace just passes them out to non patrol individuals at taxpayer expense for maintenance, insurance, fuel, tires and ETC.
If you have connections you too may be able for the free car ride and all that goes along with it.
An Indiana Sheriff can only serve for two terms and if re-elected to a second term they usually fall into a black hole.
