I watched Sheriff Lovick's interview by Comcast and was disappointed that there wasn't an interview done with someone that really could tell you how things are at Snohomish County Jail.
The only really truthful statement he made was that he doesn't know anything about running a jail nor do his command staff.
After a year of "managing" the jail a command Chief stated he had to ask what a "direct supervision" jail was!
Now this command Chief has been a county sheriff for 25yrs+ and doesn't know the type of jail we have??
As for morale and sick leave that is still a big problem. The only time sick leave subsided was when staff thought they would be disciplined if found to be abusing it.
