Edmonson sheriff’s budget

BROWNSVILLE, Ky. – The Edmonson County Sheriff’s Office now has a departmental budget set for 2020, but the budget is substantially lower than what was asked for.

This year’s budget is $666,000 but Sheriff Shane Doyle requested $694,000.

Although the budget is higher than last year’s the funds may not be enough to cover the overtime due to call volume and workload.

The sheriff’s office is seeing nearly double the workload now than it did six years ago, with the exact same number of employees.

The sheriff’s office confirms that in only the first 12 days of 2020, they have already conducted 14 arrests.
