32 Positions Eliminated from Fresno County Sheriff's Office
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The Fresno County Board of Supervisors approved Sheriff Margaret Mims request to cut dozens of positions from her department.
Mims originally asked the county to cut 67-positions, but officials say that number was reduced because of retirements and people leaving the sheriff's office.
32-positions will now be lost, 17 from vacant positions, and 15 jobs that are currently occupied. Those 15 correctional officers will be laid off within the next week.
