Furloughed St. Clair County Sheriffs Not Back At Work Yet

Maria Keena

ST. CLAIR COUNTY, IL (KMOX) – The Saint Clair County Sheriff’s Department will have to do with less….at least for now. That’s because a plan to bring back eight of twelve laid off deputies hits a hurdle.

Sheriff Mearl Justus calls the Fraternal Order of Police demand ridiculous and says  one deputy came back to work without the back pay.  Justus tells KMOX that many members of the Fraternal Order of Police never even knew that the attorney Rick Stewart made the request. Stewart says it was part of a negotiating effort.

The Attorney for the Sheriff’s Department has filed an appeal and requested a meeting with St. Clair County Board Chairman Mark Kern.
