The American Civil Liberties Union studied such programs at three jails, including the Hamilton County jail. During a news conference&nbsp;Wednesday, the ACLU said <strong>collections agencies often pose an additional financial drain on counties, with minimal results</strong> and often ruin the credit rating of people who have left jail but cannot afford to pay these fees.</p> Wed, 26 Jun 2013 21:38:26 +0000 Ann Thompson 14262 at http://wvxu.org ACLU report critical of Hamilton County jail fees Sheriff's office wants more staff to keep up with higher jail populations http://wvxu.org/post/sheriffs-office-wants-more-staff-keep-higher-jail-populations <p></p><p>The Hamilton County Sheriff's office is asking for extra staff to keep up with the added work now that "revolving door" at the jail is closed.</p><p>Major Charmaine McGuffey wants three additional officers to handle increased record keeping.
