Henry Strength: How will Warnke do all this?

I have the utmost respect for Suzzette Norris and I have no problem with her becoming undersheriff. She has the qualifications for the position. But I have some concerns how Sheriff’s candidate Vern Warnke is going to address the issue of enhancing officer and public safety when he wants to put patrol on 10-hour shifts, which puts fewer officers on patrol, and will drastically affect the citizens of the county. His plans for towers at the jail facility are great, but where are these extra correctional officers coming from to staff them? They are already understaffed, since they’re mandated to work overtime just to fill shifts.
