  1. My ONLY “local” news source these days is The Augusta Press. I feel personally slighted as a subscriber to TAP. A while back I inquired of RCSO what is the demographic make-up of the department and got no answer.

    • Watching Boss Hogg and Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane in The Dukes of Hazzard reruns helps me understand how Augusta-Richmond County operates.

      That said, after living here 39 years, every interaction I had RCSO personnel was pleasant, respectful, and equitable.

  2. True leaders embrace as many opportunities as possible to celebrate the success of those they are charged to lead. The sheriff is missing out on a great opportunity to showcase the talent of his staff in a local media source.

  3. After being very positively impressed by Sheriff Roundtree’s first 2 year’s in office, I must say that I can no longer remain a fan. His attitude towards the public has gradually changed and not for the better. His initial philosophy of “we” has dramatically morphed into “us vs them”. Such a posture greatly hampers any agencies ability to properly serve us.

  4. Once again this is proof that unqualified people are elected to important positions in Richmond County. Until the minority starts voting for candidates based on qualifications instead of skin color, nothing will change. Roundtree is just like this so called President, he knows he will be embarrassed by trying to answer tough questions.
