MARIN COUNTY, Calif. - Marin County Sheriff Robert Doyle wants the county to consider renting a house so that deputies, some of whom face commutes that take two hours or more, have a place they can sleep overnight.

The sheriff says renting a house where employees can spend the night is a way to help recruit deputies who can't afford to live in Marin. A five-year veteran deputy is paid $83,824 annually, plus benefits.
