Police and Sheriff's Departments in our area have to make some tough choices.
Less state and local aid is leading to overcrowded jails, no raises, and even possible lay-offs.

[OUT Q=it goes up]


And that has the Sheriff crunching numbers.
The department receives most of its funding from the county.
This year's budget calls for more than a hundred thousand dollars in cuts for the sheriff's department.
That will lead to fewer vehicles, cuts in the uniform allowance, and no raises for this year.
The state will also be sending less aid this year to law enforcement agencies across the state.
[SOT 13:04]
[IN Q=If the state doesn't]

((FRANK CASSELL/HENRY CO. SHERIFF: IF THE STATE DOESN'T STEP IN AND PICKUP WHAT THEY'RE SUPPOSE TO AND PICK UP THEIR FAIR SHARE I DONT KNOW WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO. I KNOW ONE THING I'M GOING TO DO IS SUE THE STATE, I'M GOING TO HAVE TO.))

That may not be easy.
According to Sheriff Cassell, the state legislature last year passed a law preventing sheriff's from suing the state.
