Meanwhile, the sheriff in town is releasing criminals and reducing arrests, all while telling citizens not to do anything to protect themselves.

The sheriff is merely an elected official. He is mouthing the words and beliefs of the voters who put him in office. It does sound like he is not a very politically astute person, at least not if he wants to be re-elected.
