Escambia County Sheriff’s Office: Apathy for Employees

I posted about Henrique Dias being absent from his post as the CFO of ECSO. It has now been 3 weeks and Dias has not been mentioned. It is implied he will not return. Dias has been at this agency for 20 years.  He’s 54 years old. He has 2 kids in college. Three weeks have passed without anyone actually checking to see why this long time employee just stopped coming to work. He’s not been reported missing.  Admin at the ECSO will not allow people to ask questions; no one has explained why this top echelon employee isn’t there.

Am I really the only one who thinks that his absence, at this point in time, as well as Morgan’s absence for the better part of this time, is really fishy? The county budget for the ECSO was referred to the Governor; it is tax time in an agency with need of fiduciary guidance, yet no one is really concerned about the future of this agency or what it would mean if financial matters came to a halt for the employees?

Can someone who has worked beside people for years be so unimportant as to not draw attention when they inexplicably don’t show up for a prolonged period of time? Would you notice if your long term colleague stopped showing up? Would you call his wife to make sure he’s ok? Would you ask his neighbors if they had seen him? Would you expect your boss (who happens to run an agency that has a duty to locate people in the community) to silence people who ask questions or spread DISINFORMATION about their employee?

That is precisely what has happened here. Why the games? Why the apathy? If this agency can’t be truthful with its own ABOUT its own, can it be trusted to care about the nameless people it is suppose to protect?

Every life matters and this is a perfect example of what this agency thinks of the people in its trust. If there ever was a case where actions are louder than words, this is it.

If you stopped coming to work one day, wouldn’t you wish someone would feel a duty to find out why??
