Petition Closed

Violations of Hamilton County Sheriff's Office General Orders 26.1.1.

"Employees shall avoid associations or dealings with persons whom they know are under criminal investigations or criminal indictment, or who have a reputation in the community for present involvement in felonious or criminal behavior, except as necessary to the performance of official duties or where unavoidable because of other personal relationships of that employee." "Employees shall report any violations of the rules or orders of the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office by any other employee.

Hammond made calls to the magistrate on behalf of convicted felon, Lonnie Hood, after his New Years Eve arrest for disorderly contact and resisting arrest, a clear violation of Sheriff Department policy. An expedited and redused process for one is unfair to those without partnerships with Sheriff Hammond. Hammond made arrangements for Hood to do his seven days of community service at the Sheriff's Department too, doing unlicensed construction work.


As Sheriff of Hamilton County, Hammond's unethical and unprofessional is unacceptable. We demand is resignation, as means of preserving the integrity and honor of the Sheriff's Department, our deputies, and our county.

Letter to
Hamilton County Sheriff's Department
I just signed the following petition addressed to: Hamilton County Sheriff's Department.

We demand the resignation of Sheriff Jim Hammond on the grounds of unethical and unprofessional actions for the benefit of a convicted felon, which are biased and unfair. And for violations of Hamilton County Sheriff's Office General Orders 26.1.1.

"Employees shall avoid associations or dealings with persons whom they know are under criminal investigations or criminal indictment, or who have a reputation in the community for present involvement in felonious or criminal behavior, except as necessary to the performance of official duties or where unavoidable because of other personal relationships of that employee." "Employees shall report any violations of the rules or orders of the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office by any other employee.

Hammond made calls to the magistrate on behalf of convicted felon, Lonnie Hood, after his New Years Eve arrest for disorderly contact and resisting arrest. Hammond arranged for Hood to do his seven days of community service in the Sheriff's department. Such actions are in clear violation of Sheriff Department policy.

Hammond has engaged in unprofessional an unfair hiring practices, by hiring friends, neighbors, and campaign contributors, where he should have made public announcements for positions so that the most qualified were hired, ensuring the proficiency that the people of Hamilton County deserve.

Sheriff Hammond must resign!


Sincerely,

The People of Hamilton County
