People power is what the Brazos County Sheriff's Office wants out of the new budget. Sheriff Chris Kirk is asking commissioners to approve the addition of 14 new positions for his office.
Nine of those would work for the jail of which seven would serve on a transition team to monitor construction on the new jail and train other employees.
Kirk says three more employees are needed for the sheriff's administration including a warrant deputy, animal control officer and crime scene technician.
The final two positions would be assigned to courthouse security.
The total cost of the new positions would be more than a half-million dollars.
