The Putnam County Sheriff's office is going through some changes, and those changes are expected to be better for the department and citizens.
Sheriff Steve DeWeese asked the county commission to allow him to make three part-time bailiffs positions out of a retiring sergeant’s position, and also to add four corporals to the force. DeWeese said the reorganization costs about $13,000 and is well worth it.
“When I was running for office, I said I would take a proactive, and not a reactive approach, at every level and I've continued to do that,” he said.
The Putnam County Commission approved the reorganization this week.
