Butler County Sheriff Office lays off 10

By Tiffany Teasley – bio | email

HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - The Butler County Sheriff office is operating on bare bones.
 

"We're getting down so lean that I think we're going to find that response times are going to be delayed, the 911 center is starting to be effected," said Chief Deputy Anthony Dwyer.

The Sheriff's office will lay off 10 more employees this week -- half deputies and half corrections. A total of 60 positions have been eliminated since 2009.
 
"When you lose 60 some people, you're going to feel that effect," Dwyer said.
 
The department blames estimated revenues not matching up with projections, now they're trying to be creative with how they manage these cuts.
 
"We may have to do some things with our lobby where we'll only be open to give reports out for a certain amount of time or a certain number of days," Dwyer said.
 
And the layoffs trickle down past just those getting pink slips.
 
"When you get so lean, like on patrol because I lay so many patrol officers off that I have to roll detectives or sergeants back to fill those spots," Dwyer said.
 
And Chief Dwyer says the cuts don't just effect safety in the county, they also impact lives and families.
 
"They're pregnant, just had children, just bought a house, and you know that's going to adversely effect their whole life," Dwyer said.
 
 The layoffs are effective in 30 days.
