Dodge County Commissioners questioned Dodge County Sheriff Lynn Sheffield about his budget at their regular meeting on Monday, June 16, 2014.
Commissioner Cheek questioned the increase referring to the number of overtime hours jailers were accumulating, housing expense increase and medical expense increase.
Sheriff Sheffield explained that his department was training jailers and once they were trained they were going to other counties to work because of increase in pay. The sheriff’s department is working with seven to eight jailers, working 12 hours shifts, to ensure the safety of the inmates.
Cheek questioned if there was a problem with scheduling and requested that Sheffield look into it.
