Costs increase at Adams County sheriff's office

NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - Costs are up at the Adams County Sheriff's Department.

Sheriff Chuck Mayfield tells the Natchez Democrat the largest expenses in his office have been computers and office positions.

The sheriff's office spent nearly $2.5 million on administration in the 2009-2010 fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, 2010. Those expenses increased by $293,000 or 13.3% from the previous fiscal year.

Budget records show the increase from 2009 to 2010 was spent mostly on the new computer system, clerical personnel, a category called "other contractual services" and vehicle equipment.

Mayfield says the new computer system should streamline data to allow inmate history, processing data, warrants and data from the Natchez Police Department to be located in one place once it's fully online.
