They'd like to form the department's first association.
Deputies would join on a voluntary basis and would pay a fee to be a member.
That would help with legal costs as well as charitable contributions from the group.
Deputies tell us the association is a way for them to join together as one voice and support their Sheriff, Ricky Bishop on addressing important issues like pay.
It would also serve as a way for them to reach out to the community and serve as a group instead of individually.
They'll be meeting with more organizations before determining their next steps.
