Albany - A letter from the Dougherty County Sheriff angers some commissioners and may sway the decision to consolidate the Dougherty County Police and Sheriff's Department.

Earlier this month, commissioners sent a letter to Sheriff Jamil Saba asking for answers to some questions concerning the consolidation. Saba then sent a letter saying he would send the information not to the commission, but to the Department of Community Affairs. That's the agency Saba suggested the county use to conduct a study on the consolidation.

But, commissioners want the answers to come straight to them. "I don't think we should spend a dime on studying consolidation until the Sheriff gives us the information we asked for," said Commissioner Jack Stone.

The County Administrator says the Department of Community Affairs does not look into consolidation like this. The commission may hire the Institute of Government to conduct the study.
