When Sheriff Sandra Hutchens told county supervisors this summer that she was going to set up a comprehensive jail audit, many started salivatingâ€¦and having dreams aboutÂ cheaper correctional officers or maybe even private prisons.
But when they heard the two consultants gear up at todayâ€™s supervisors meeting, the saliva mainly came from sups mouths hanging wide openâ€¦even yawning.
No correctional officers. No private prisons.
In fact, quite the opposite. Check out my story here. The auditors say they need up to 500 more deputies and jail faciilities need upgradesâ€¦All during a budget hearing where sups were slicing $32 million.Â Â
