Adams County Sheriff Asks For More Help

As Adams County lawmakers work on finalizing the 2018 budget Sheriff Dale Wagner says he is asking for funding to increase his department’s staff. Wagner says he is looking to add two more deputies and two additional corrections officers to bring staffing levels close to where they were several years ago when positions were cut. The sheriff says reduced staff means slower response to calls for help and with the jail seeing more bookings every month more personnel are needed there too. The Adams County Commission will be holding a budget meeting on December 14.
