It isn’t every day that a recall is put forward to remove an elected official from their position. This is not something that is done on a whim. High standards of proof have been set to even allow a petition to go before the people. As recently substantiated by a legal firm, Sheriff Jerry Hatcher has harassed and retaliated against deputies in his department who have tried to hold him accountable for his actions. He has also attempted to interfere with investigations against him. He has turned the Benton County Sheriff’s Office into a hostile work environment that has led to stress-related health problems among deputies and has driven many deputies away from the department.
In order to preserve the integrity and accountability of the Benton County Sheriff’s Office, we are putting forth a petition to recall Sheriff Jerry Hatcher. We do not believe that he represents the ideals of teamwork, integrity, and commitment that the department strives for and we no longer trust that he will support our deputies in their service nor honestly investigate any department misconduct. We call upon the citizens of Benton County to recall Sheriff Hatcher.
