Dear Editor: The Boyle County Fiscal Court should step up to the plate and find the funds to help the sheriff's department to hire additional deputies. The recent transfer of juveniles to Breathitt County means a 220-mile round trip every time a juvenile must be in court. The sheriff's department rightly sends two deputies on these runs, severely limiting coverage in Boyle County. Inmate transport is not the only problem. Law enforcement understaffing in Junction City, Perryville and smaller rural Boyle County communities along with all of the other duties the sheriff's department provides have stretched it to the breaking point.
