Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews wants to pay his deputies more money in an effort to keep them on staff instead of losing them to other agencies. Matthews told Kershaw County Council members during a work session Thursday that the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) is becoming a training ground, and that the level of staff experience is decreasing as he loses valuable personnel. Matthews said he originally intended to make the same budget request he’s made in previous years: funds to hire additional deputies.
