The Transylvania Times -

Pay Law Officers More


Last updated 5/24/2021 at 8:37am

We’re all aware of surging early retirements and the shortage of new recruits in our law enforcement agencies in many parts of the country. With all the momentum of “Defund the Police” taking shape, we’d better get in front of this movement here in Transylvania County. When Chief Harris and Sheriff Mahoney submit their next budgets, our county and city managers along with the county commissioners and city council members should sharpen their pencils and approve salary increases for all our law enforcement officers and support personnel.

Additionally, we need budgets to include newly hired salaries above average for small town/county U.S.A. If this county can commit millions of dollars to enhance our schools, then we should be able to be highly competitive when it comes to compensation of the Thin Blue Line.

Last, but not least, whenever you see one of our law enforcement officers, tell them how much you appreciate what they do to keep us safe every hour of every day!

We live in a good place and we want to keep it that way.
