They already have one, but as crime continues to spike in the area, they need more help.
However, there's a problem.
There's not enough money from general funds to pay for a new position, so commissioners agreed to allow the department to use money seized from drug busts, car and home seizures to supply the salary for a new investigator.
The department has been able to save up enough to fill the position for a year and plan to hire someone by Oct. 2013.
Commissioners will vote on how to continue paying that position once the year is up.
