Coffee County Sheriff Seek Additional Deputies to His Staff

Coffee County Sheriff Dave Sutton says his deputies are spending too many hours delivering summons and dealing with court matters instead of patrolling the county.

Sheriff Sutton says he likes to see his staff make drug busts, and put the bad guys behind bars.

Sheriff Sutton would like to add an additional deputy or deputies to his staff in order to lessen the paperwork requirements to deliver summons and court orders.

In coming weeks the sheriff's department plans to work with the county administrator’s office in order to come up with more law enforcement dollars for next year's budget.
