Scott Wants To Hire More Personnel
Franklin County Sheriff Zach Scott says a ten month long study shows his office needs to hire 175 more people, especially for patrols and guarding jail inmates.
It's the latest twist in an ongoing battle between Scott and County Commissioners over his budget. Commission President John O'Grady says the Sheriff's budget needs to be cut. The study conducted by a private firm does not include an estimate of the costs of hiring more personnel.
