Law enforcement reports staff shortages | Local News


Like countless other professions, law enforcement agencies in the region are experiencing personnel shortages.

Franklin County Sheriff Steve Pelton said his department lost 11 staff, including two traffic cops, eight Franklin County jail officers and a new school resource officer for the school district of Lonedel. He said many of the open prison stations were recently created after an agreement with the US Marshal Service to house up to 40 federal inmates awaiting trial.
