Dear Editor: I read with interest the flurry of comments involving the placement of a fish on the rear of Deputy Sheriff Marty Elliott?s cruiser. Among the comments that interested me most were those relating to the character and stature of Marty and the sheriff?s department as a whole. As a practitioner of criminal defense law in this area, I want to assure this community that we are indeed protected by the finest of officers, both men and women, with whom I deal regularly. Sheriff LeeRoy Hardin and his staff, following in the footsteps of Karl Luttrell, do an outstanding job upholding peace, dignity, and fairness within our county.

Boyle County Fiscal Court approved the 2011 salary cap and budget for the sheriff’s office Tuesday, a plan that saw a slight increase in spending despite some large cuts in the department. Sheriff Marty Elliott presented an outline of expenses totaling $954,823 for the upcoming year, which is $3,894 more than last year’s budget. The $539,500 salary cap approved was exactly the same as last year’s. The sheriff’s department is a fee office, meaning revenue for the budget presented Tuesday comes largely from commissions on levees collected by the department.
