Vote Rico S. Giron for San Miguel County Sheriff in the general election on Tuesday November 2, 2010.
|Citizens Advisory Committee|
The concept of a Citizen’s Advisory Committee is very unique in my Sheriff’s Office. It is an opportunity for the Citizens of the County to hold the Sheriff’s Office accountable to the Citizens of the County that elected the Sheriff into office in the first place. There are not many Sheriff’s Offices in the entire country that have set up Citizen’s Advisory Committees. This can serve as a great opportunity for greater Citizen involvement and participation in the County affairs.
I will establish an advisory committee of five volunteers that represent a cross section of the general population. Upon first thought, I listed a housewife, a nurse, a college student, a teacher and a professor. This list however, is not written in stone. If there exists a better cross section of the population I am more than happy to have that reflected in the advisory committee.
This Citizen’s Advisory Committee will coordinate extremely well with the Open Door Policy for a couple reasons. During the Open Door Policy hours any Citizen can come in with their written complaint concerning any employee in the Sheriff’s Office, including the Sheriff himself, deposit it with the Sheriff, receive a receipt for their documentation and it will be forwarded to the Citizen’s Advisory Committee.
On the other hand, should a Citizen not feel comfortable dealing with the Sheriff in person, there will be a posting of the contact information for the Citizen’s Advisory Committee at the designated Office where I will hold office hours for my Open Door Policy. This contact information will be available at all times to all Citizens of the County through various means including publishing the contact information in the local newspaper. This way a Citizen can deal directly with the Citizen’s Advisory Committee and never have to feel intimidated by the Sheriff. Once the Citizen’s Advisory Committee is established, they can put in place further safeguards for the privacy and protection of the Citizen filing the complaint, thereby eliminating the opportunity for retaliation against the complaining Citizen on the part of the Sheriff’s Office.
Again, a fair warning to the Citizens of the County, you will be expected to involve yourself as a Citizen in creating solutions to daily problems that you encounter by using your God-given intelligence and creativity. You will be expected to empower yourself by engaging the process of Freedom. You will be expected to join the Community Policing Programs or establish one in your neighborhood. You will be expected to join or establish the “Keep Thy Neighbor” neighborhood association in your neighborhood. You will be expected to join the Sheriff’s Volunteer Posse.
Only through maximum Citizen participation, involvement and engagement in the process of Freedom can the County be made safer for our children, our families and our neighbors.
