Sheriff Checks Self Into Jail

An Illinois sheriff may be taking his job a little too seriously as he goes behind bars — voluntarily.

Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran said his goal is to talk to inmates so he can see the jail from their perspective to solve potential problems, such as safety issues, and better understand the inmate experience.

While actual inmates bunk together in a cell, Curran will sleep in his own cell for his own safety reasons. He checked himself in on Wednesday.

"I want some introspection but let's be realistic. I'm never going to be able to completely create that scenario," Curran told The Associated Press by telephone from jail.

So far, Curran said he has met several inmates, not all of whom appeared to realize he was sheriff. For those who do recognize him, he said he'll have to work to gain their trust.

If he wants the real experience he needs to go to another county and get locked up with other people. Being in his own cell is useless.

I am a bit surprised he is doing this - as even with sleeping in his own cell, that's pretty damn dangerous. I go to the local jail quite a bit to deal with people on probation. It doesn't bother me, because I know I get to leave - but I wouldn't stay there overnight, and I never have to go into the individual cell area.

This is a BS experiment. Whats next, cops attempting to figure out how many licks it take to get to the center of a 'Tootsie Pop"?

Waisting tax payers money to do crap like this makes me beleave that
most sheriff's should be put behind bars. For real.
