The Lauderdale County Sheriff's Department proposed some budget changes at Monday's supervisor meeting.

Following the closure of the Lauderdale County Youth Detention Center, some funds have opened up that once were going toward personnel and upkeep at the Detention Center, and Sheriff Billy Sollie made some suggestions about where to use that money.

The board approved three new Dodge Chargers to add to the patrol fleet, and Sollie says in the future, the department will be putting less money into the juvenile detention budget.

"We believe that Lauderdale County is going to save money," says Sollie, "as well as provide an environment for our youth to be detained in."

The budget amendment also calls for funds to go toward ankle bracelets to monitor youthful offenders.
