For the first time since the decision was made to dissolve the city-county police merger, the Chatham County manager is talking about the police force the county commission is planning to build to police the unincorporated areas. Instead of turning over that responsibility to the sheriff's office, the county has chosen to build its Chatham County Police Department from scratch - but to what advantage and at what cost to the county taxpayer?
All indications are that the Chatham County Commission Chairman and the County Manager have made a decision about the future of law enforcement in Chatham County. Thursday afternoon, all of the groundwork for a new Chatham County Police Department was laid. Through the County Human Resources Department, there was a job announcement for Police officers and an Assistant Police Chief for officers to provide public safety services for the unincorporated areas of Chatham County.
When you have a K-9 unit as large as the Chatham County Sheriff's Office, the best protections come at a huge price. The nine dogs and handlers that make up that unit have rolled the dice for years now, hoping no suspect would open fire on an unprotected K-9 officer. That worry is now gone. Last month a non-profit called, "Vested Interest in K9s" donated $10,000 worth of bullet proof vests for the dogs.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
