Lieutenant Position

Department: Commissioners Court Admin  

Information
RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider creation of a Lieutenant position in the Sheriff's ID Section, Department 3710.
BACKGROUND
DISCUSSION
The Sheriff's ID Section is responsible for all the bookings and releases of inmates, reporting of crime data to various organizations including the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, and maintaining accurate jail inmate information.  There is currently only one Officer assigned to the ID Section and that Officer is the only person who can input/correct information that is forwarded to the TDCJ.
 
In addition to the above, the department has just started the process of converting to a new jail management software system which requires an Officer who fully understands the reporting requirements to assist in this process.  With only one Officer, this project will not be completed in a timely manner.

It is recommended that a second Officer position be added to the ID Section. This will alleviate the large backlog in filing and correcting jail data and, more importantly, it will ensure there is a second Officer who can perform these duties.
