Albany --If the Dougherty County Police and Sheriff's Departments merge, no one will be fired. Sheriff Jamil Saba says it'll save the county more than one million dollars. Dougherty County Police officers are worried they'll lose their jobs, but the sheriff says that won't happen.

 Sheriff Saba said "You will always have turnovers, no matter what organization you are in. When the turnovers come in we will eliminate those slots, and that is what we are trying to do."

There are 46 employees in the Dougherty County Police Department. The Sheriff's office employs 275. Sheriff Saba says his main concern is to have the best Police force in Dougherty County for the least tax money possible.
