Editorial: County should pay for second investigator

Email News Alerts

At a time when Hubbard County Sheriff Cory Aukes was making yet another impassioned plea for a second criminal investigator, the county board was quietly axing that request from his budget.


Aukes made the point Tuesday that public safety isn’t like other departments, subject to cuts and cutbacks.

For the most part the sheriff has done a good job on his manpower situation, balancing the need for 24/7 patrol, adding a drug officer and making internal changes.
