Thirteen deputies were laid off, which means only two or three deputies will patrol the county on any given shift. The sheriff believes those numbers are alarming and on Wednesday, some protesters agreed.
"Been there for seven years, I'm going to lose my job and who knows about anything else as far as finances go, losing a house,” laid off deputy Alan Sands said.
"I think they could have made cuts elsewhere besides messing with people's lives,” laid off deputy Diana Elkins said.
Sheriff Thomas Maurer said he was forced to eliminate jobs after commissioners slashed his budget about half a million dollars. He also close the detective bureau, so investigators could replace the laid off deputies.
"For the last 14 years, I've stood proudly and said that there's a sense of security that we've been able to deliver to the citizens of this county, but I cannot make that statement any further." Maurer said.
