24 Hour Critical Incident Hotline: 877-IFOP-911

By Dan Mahoney, Attorney - Friday, July 14, 2017


This afternoon, the Union had a conversation with the Sheriff’s Office regarding county-wide layoffs. Once again, it should be stressed that no layoff notices have gone out to Court Service Deputies. The Union is committed to keeping the current workforce intact.

After receiving a notification from the County Board President regarding layoffs, the Sheriff sent proposals to the County with alternatives to laying off personnel. The Sheriff has met with the County, and will continue to meet with the County to try to prevent layoffs.

The Sheriff’s Office has assured the Union that if layoffs are unavoidable they will work with the Union to minimize the impact, with an emphasis on the health and safety of the Court Service Deputies.
