Hamilton County Commissioner Survey – Additional Comments

3. Do you believe that the Sheriff should be the supreme governmental authority for enforcing the Ohio Constitution within his respective county?

Chris Monzel – The Sheriff is the county’s chief law enforcement with duties to maintain the peace, operate the jail, attend the courts (security), investigate crimes, and execute processes (deliver or serve a variety of legal documents including subpoenas, summons, lawsuits…in addition the Sheriff also presents property evictions, seizes and sell property ordered to be sold by a court).

4. Do you believe that Federal and foreign agents should be prohibited from exercising enforcement powers within Hamilton County except by and through the Sheriff and only upon presentment of a valid judicial warrant?

Chris Monzel – The Sheriff should be notified via valid certification (judicial
warrant etc.) before Federal or other foreign agents exercise their enforcement powers within the county.
