BIRMINGHAM, Alabama -- Jefferson County Sheriff Mike Hale will formally notify the Alabama Department of Public Safety today that sheriff's deputies no longer will respond to traffic accidents beginning Saturday
"We just will not have the resources after Saturday to have personnel tied up at traffic accident sites," Hale said. "The little coverage we have will be dedicated to crime fighting."
Hale has announced plans to reduce his employees to a 32-hour work week -- a 20 percent pay cut -- to make up for a $3 million reduction to his budget.
Birmingham Al. (WIAT)- The Jefferson County Commission is cutting around 1000 jobs and some of them include the security officers at the courthouses.
Judge Scott Vowell says it’s those cuts that are prompting them to shut down all the courthouses. Starting June 27th the courthouses will no longer hold any trials and that means that people could be denied their constitutional right to a speedy trial.
The judge is hoping to come up with a solution to keep the courthouses open, but with the sheriff’s office having to cut around 150 deputies, it could be a difficult task.
Wait, why are sheriff deputies responding to traffic reports? Is this an Alabama thing?
