The Hamilton County Sheriff's office is asking for extra staff to keep up with the added work now that "revolving door" at the jail is closed.
Major Charmaine McGuffey wants three additional officers to handle increased record keeping. She's asking for two officers with a base pay of $37,000 and one at $42,000 (not including benefits).The department also wants to purchase 215 additional electronic monitoring units and add two staff to operate them. The total price tag for that would be around $546,126.

This week WVXU Political Reporter Howard Wilkinson talks about the Ohio Governor's race and the changing attitudes on gay marriage, with Maryanne Zeleznik.
U.S. Sen Rob Portman's son, Will, wrote a column in today's Yale Daily News, explaining in great detail how he decided to "come out of the closet" about being gay; and how his father reacted.
The junior senator from Ohio learned his son was gay two years ago. Earlier this month, Portman came out in favor of gay marriage, the only Republican senator who has done so.
When Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Neil announced last week he had ended the revolving door at the Justice Center, he didn't give specifics.
