Kentucky representative wants to eliminate jailers without jails

A Kentucky representative wants to eliminate jailers without jails.

Representative Phil Moffett, (R) Louisville announced on Monday he will file a bill that if passed would direct all counties that currently do not have an operating jail to consolidate their local jailer’s office with the county sheriff’s office.

Moffett says if the bill becomes law, it could save Kentucky taxpayers up to $2 million annually.

The bill is still being drafted but is expected to be filed for the 2015 session of Kentucky’s General Assembly.
