Should Jake Day Select His Own People?


There was a lot of conversation yesterday in regards to my post about Salisbury Police Chief Barbara Duncan and her apparent "safe" job at the department. It has been acknowledged that Barb is not a good leader of the Department and has caused morale issues, however she is being given a free pass for some reason.

The question has to be asked, don't you think Jake Day should bring in his own selections as Department Heads instead of just keeping all the Ireton crew? Each Mayor is supposed to put his own stamp on his administration by bringing in the people he wants in those jobs. I personally feel that Jake has been reluctant to fire anyone from Jim's rule.

I'm not saying he should just fire people if they are doing their jobs, but I would have at least liked to seen him advertise for the positions to see if we have the best available. Barbara Duncan is not the best person for the job, and honestly the argument that she is close to retiring is not good enough. If someone is terrible at their job I don't care if they have been there 20 years, time to hit the road.  I want to be clear, I do not think Barb is a bad person outside of work, this criticism is of her work performance only.

Barb has no personality as Chief, she never comes out and mingles with people at Third Friday, and she has a very unfriendly demeanor. I can only imagine the way she acts toward people who have to call her their boss. I believe honestly Jake Day needs o begin selections on his own Chief Of Police.

Day is to concerned about how someone feels about him...how he looks in the public eye....he needs to make changes and not listen to Ireton. When things are not working it is obvious time for change in SFP and SPD!! Just letting things ride is not an example of leadership, changes have to be made popular or unpopular!

Wait until retirement?????WTF is that. Get her the hell out before the whole department collapses. Give her a job somewhere else in the city and let her ride it out selfishly as she wants to. Jake and Barbs are impacting this city and peoples lives everyday. She is slowly destroying the SPD why can't he see this. Jake.....Talk to the officers and see. Not just one bc of bias, but talk to ones you trust and see what is said. do something now....

Clint eastwood.

I think she is a great police chief. She thinks of her officers before taking credit for something. She is probably doing her job and you corrupt people can't handle it!

Again. The police crime. I'm era are being changed and reclassified.
Actual Examples
attempted burglary downtown was changed to mdop
A murder am manslaughter on boat ramp was changed to agrivated assault.
Vehicular assault changed to GOA
These are actual changes that have been made. Police officers are furious. But they have to do it.
Also some calls are not even responded to now.
We need an independent review of what's going on.

Calls for service on the rise, and the police force on the decline. It is a matter of time before the whole department crumbles.....

Here's the line-up.....Jack Heath -- Mayor and Tod Richardson Salisbury Police Chief, if you can lure him away from Sheriff Lewis. Both of these guys represent backbone, speak their mind but in respectful manner and they listen to rank in file. Get Rick back in his County spot and we've solved all our areas problems. OH crap not quite....A$$BURROW is still under a rock somewhere....ha ha ha

Good call on Todd Richardson. Great person and leader.

I do not have any personal information regarding Chief Duncan's performant in her position. JT, you seem to be unhappy that she does not mingle on 3rd Friday. I agree that this might be a good strategy to make her seem more of a community person. However, I have seen her several times in one of our city schools. She interacts in a positive way with the kids. The kids respond to her and seem to listen and respect her. Of the two venues, I think the school is the more impressive.

The police dept needs the city and county to help them out by making it harder for criminals to stay in Salisbury and county. Maybe get rid of section 8 housing for starters and maybe stop building waterfront housing paid for by tax payers.

Every department head should be the choice of the new Mayor. Since these were Jim Liarton's selection, all should be replaced.

Snowflake Jake wants the Mayor to be a full time position. Really? He was aide de camp to the Adjutant General of the Maryland NG. Can't he use his call his former boss to get him a full time Guard job if he can't find one in civilian life? Why should we the taxpayers have to fund his job? We have never had a full time paid mayor. Why start now.

He knew it when he ran. If he doesn't like it - RESIGN!

He was endorsed by Barrie Parsons Tighlman. Remember what a great job SHE did for the city?

This should tell you all you need to know about Fake Day.
