Utah sheriff's department feeling the budget crunch

DAVIS COUNTY, Utah - The Davis County Sheriff's Office is broke.
A recent e-mail from the administration to the patrol deputies said that because funds are basically dried up for the rest of the year, no overtime will be granted, morning briefings are canceled and deputies are required to limit their driving to 75 to 100 miles per 12-hour shift, even though the county is 30 miles long and the Sheriff's Office is responsible for much of the paramedic service in the county.
