Sheriff Hedges has been asleep at the post during most of his reign as San Luis Obispo’s top cop. NEW TIMES has done a good job of covering the innumerable messes of Hedges.
Can we elect a replacement who can bring the department up to professional standards? Can the corruption which has been allowed to fester within the Sheriffs Department be revealed and eliminated? Will the rank & file obstruct reform?
Can the public claim a role in bringing the department back to a place of trust in the community? I certainly hope so.
