Many Sheriff's Departments in our area, now have to deal with overcrowded jails.
Although, overcrowded office space is another issue for one Department.
The Pitt County Sheriff's Office has literally turned closet space into office space.
When the Department moved into the newly renovated Courthouse, back in 2004, not all of the Department could fit, so they had to use other facilities to make do.
Now as the Department grows, they're looking at less space. Especially at the Ninth street location in Greenville.
The County Commissioner decided on Monday to re-evaluate the cost of renovating the old Army Reserve Building versus constructing a new building.
So far, County Commissioners have asked for another cost analysis before spending the extra money.
