BOCC examines possible SO move

Published: Thursday, February 13, 2014 at 01:49 PM.

Sheriff Mike Harrison asked the Board of County Commissioners for help Tuesday during the board’s regular bi-monthly meeting.

The building that houses the administrative and operations areas of the Sheriff’s Office, Harrison said, is no longer sufficient.

He is out of space, having already moved the investigative unit to downtown Port St. Joe.

He has computer work stations that due to where they are located are out of compliance with Florida Department of Law Enforcement security requirements.

The evidence room is in the rear of the building which not only houses the SO but the Gulf County Jail, necessitating deputies and investigators to bring evidence out through the jail when requested.

 The administrative staff is just inside the front door, Harrison’s office just a few steps beyond.

“I am asking for help and an alternative site,” Harrison said. “The facility is inadequate for what we have to do.”
