Dougherty County - -  Sheriff Jamil Saba says many county employees are underpaid and he wants that to change.

Sheriff Saba spoke to county commissioners Monday.

The county hired a company to study pay rates for employees. Saba says he fears employees won't get the necessary raises.

He says that's a problem since his deputies and other county workers haven't gotten cost of living raises in the last three years.  

"If you want good employees, you've got to pay them. We've got good employees. I'd hate to see them leave that's all," he said.

Saba says when his deputies finish law enforcement training, they make two to three dollars less per hour than APD officers.
