"watching out fosionan says, "sheriff nathan sickler has been fighting for a new jail in the sheriff's office since he was promoted to patrol captain in 20-15. this month the county bought the space to make that happen. bill froelich says a new jail should be built, but says more can be done now." froelich has nearly three decades of law enforcement experience under his belt. he thinks a steel modular structure like this could be a temporary solution for up to 20 years. froelich says, "we could take for instance 121 inmates, attach that unit to the jail, and reduce by 121 the offenders that are out on the street and get them into the jail where they can be treated, helped out, and stop contributing to the crime problem." froelich says it would take 3 months to build and cost 10 million dollars. sickler says, "you know nothing against him but i think right now that's not what our agency and our county needs." sheriff nathan sickler says under his leadership.. the county has made inexpensive steps to keep more criminals behind bars. sickler says, "we are thinking outside the box kind of like with the chronic fta program and holding in a few other inmates and set up the resource center on community justice to try and interlink offenders better with services." you'll remember the f-t-a program prevents early releases for chronic court skippers. sickler says the new jail model and the tax proposal required to fund it will be ready for feedback by june. for a closer look at both candidates qualifications and vision for the sheriff's office head to our website kdrv.com. in medford, sionan barrett, newswatch12. ballot drop off sites are officially
