Some do, like Henry county. Kentucky has elected jailers too. Louisville needs to go back to that and let an elected official directly run the jail, whether that's the sheriff or the jailer. I would agree that Aubrey and his people aren't up to the job of doing anything more than court security. Maybe his replacement will be if everyone knows the jail would be under the sheriff during the election.

The Sheriff is who was always intended by the constitution to do county-wide law enforcement. LMPD is a county police force by another name. The Sheriff should be running LMPD as a separate division of JCSO. They could keep the uniforms and organization the same and simply make the chief another chief deputy.

None of the Mayors in the last 20 years were up to the job of running the police departments or corrections. They always viewed public safety as stealing from their economic development spending, parks, roads, and all the rest. You need a politician who's more narrowly focused on public safety, like the Sheriff, but not a low energy guy who's just using it as a retirement gig.
