MEETING NOTES OF APPOINTMENTS
Jason Landers, Paulding County Sheriff - Sheriff Landers met with the Commissioners to discuss various issues. He noted the antennas have been moved higher on the communications tower in an effort to improve the emergency radio reception. He reported dispatch communications issues on the scene of the recent fatality on US 24 and CR 115. Sheriff Landers also presented his budget projections through December 2013. His best estimation is a shortfall in the jail supplies line item due to increased out-housing costs for inmates this year. The Sheriff noted he has bids out for patrol rifles and he also will be exchanging out pistols so they will all be uniform. He discussed the probability of retaining a drug enforcement officer and also his desire to implement "Project Life-Saver." Project Life-Saver is a program that allows law enforcement to electronically monitor Alzheimer's patients and also those with autism. Mr. Landers reported Dave Cline has been attending training and informative meetings.
The Sheriff then presented the Paulding County Sheriff monthly statement, showing 36 male and 16 female inmates held during the month of April, totaling 676 days served. He also distributed the 2013 Out-Housing Cost report which showed a total of $110,934 paid out so far in 2013. During the month of April, officers made 41 trips to Ottawa and one trip to Van Wert (totaling 2,681 miles) to transport inmates, consuming a total of 94 hours.
