The New Sheriff in Town Bob Reid entered the world of law enforcement 34 years ago as a Bedford city cop. Today, he is three months into the job as Sheriff of Cuyahoga County. Tuesday morning at 9, Sheriff Reid joins us to talk about changes he's making in the new job. We'll hear his philosophy on law enforcement, his approach to managing the department's $85 million budget, his views on the intensely political process that put him in office, and his answers to your questions.

Will the Sheriff’s Office ever rewrite the charter so the monies from citations we issue go back to the county? I know a percent of it already does, but if we rewrite the charter we can get more. Also will the Sheriff’s Office ever have a Bond, or traffic court?

So why is it that we are not the ones on the freeway doing traffic interdiction? That should be us, not the Highway Patrol.

Thank you for the positive light for our department. Finally… a interview that doesn’t make us look bad!
