Eau Claire County Sheriff looking to beef up force

Eau Claire (WQOW) - The Eau Claire County Sheriff is hoping to beef up his staff.

Thursday, Sheriff Ron Cramer spoke to the county's Judiciary and Law Enforcement Committee. He identified 19 positions he would like to add over the course of the next few years.

After talking about it, the committee and sheriff agreed to pursue two new positions for 2015; a digital forensic analyst and a bailiff.

“We recognize where the budget is at and we recognize that a personnel request is hard to come by,” Cramer said. “What we're really looking for is the reality check of what can this committee support from the committee and go to the next step."

Nothing has been approved yet. The sheriff says adding those two positions would free up other personnel to do other things. It could cost as much as 160-thousand dollars to add those two positions.
