Following the recent surge in deadly violence involving police forces across the US, a sheriff in southwest Ohio has encouraged civilians on his staff to bring their weapons to work. According to the Hamilton-Middletown Journal-News, Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones is urging his civilian staff to “exercise some extra caution†concerning their personal safety, and in a memo to full-time and part-time staff and volunteers, Jones urged those with a valid Ohio CCW License to carry their weapon within the department’s headquarters at 705 Hanover St. in Hamilton.

Sounds to me that the Sheriff has a grasp on reality. The two most dangerous places are gun free zones and your comfort zone. :uzi:

One problem is that Ohio law makes it a felony to carry into any sheriff's office or police office or any government building except rest areas and restrooms in parks and the like. There are no provisions for sheriffs to suspend the law. It's a good idea but could cause some problems too, and for the sheriff as well. Might be better if he were able to deputize them though that would probably involve going through police academy for them all.
