Reply To: Abusing his authority, NC Sheriff goes “above and beyond” what the law allows

Thanks Hoi Polloi. What you are saying about the situation in Cumberland County disturbs me quite a bit. The requirements you’re describing are certainly not legal unless they specifically concern registrants on probation (in which case, the probation department has the authority to stipulate reasonable requirements related to supervision…and there is little that can be done about that). However, if you have evidence that these requirements are being imposed on registered citizens who ARE NOT on probation, then we need to know about that. And we will take action against the sheriff. Please contact me at if you have additional information.
