Three new Grundy County Correctional Officers will be hired in the near future.

The Grundy County Board last week approved allowing Sheriff Ken Briley to fill the positions.

Briley said they currently have 12 part time employees to work at the Grundy County courthouse.

He said things could drastically change if lawmakers take away qualified immunity.

Briley said the three positions are in the proposed fiscal year 2022 budget. The cost is $150,000.
