This was surprising to read. The Board has always seemed to say they have no policy authority over the Sheriff:
"My own personal view of it is the government code does give the board of supervisors supervisorial authority over sheriffs, and that it's rarely exercised."
As it stands it seems the only thing the Sheriff is currently doing that the Board of Supervisors may have issue with is voluntary notice of release date being given to immigration. They do not honor 48 hour hold requests unless accompanied by a court order, in fact it now seems it has been found unlawful to honor hold requests unless they come with a court order.
Since Mr. Threet's primary function appears to be to reassure the public, nice fluffy pieces like this will help the cause, but where are the questions from writer Gogola for Threet regarding Sheriff Freitas's meeting with AG Jeff Sessions?
The PD reported on the meeting on Feb. 8 - the article referenced above - that "Threet said he will ask Freitas further questions next week when they are scheduled to meet."
What were those questions and what were Freitas's answers? Inquiring members of the public wish to know. Gogola asked him above to comment on the people commenting on the PD piece, yet apparently failed to ask Threet about the follow-up meeting with Freitas itself. C'mon Boho, we need some answers.
