Moultrie - Colquitt County Sheriff Al Whittington says he needs more deputies, but the County Commission says they can't afford them. The budget is tight this year and for the third year in a row, Whittington can not hire additional personel.
He says the jail is not up to full staff, and he can only put four deputies out on the roud to patrol at any given time. It takes about 40 minutes for a deputy to go from one end of the county to the other and Whittington says the citizens could be put at risk if there's a serious situation.
He says, "I foresee the calls increasing, simply because of the increase in population, but we're not going to be able to keep up."
The department has had to cut back on some services, like escorting inmates to funerals of immediate family members. Whittington under spent his budget by about $200,000 and will be able to use that money to purchase new vehicles.
He says the Sheriff's office will still keep the county safe, but citizens should be more alert to keep crime levels down.
