The Richland County Jail has too many inmates for the number of guards working there, putting safety at risk.

That's why Sheriff Steve Sheldon and Jail Administrator Joe Masi are asking the commissioners for $405,534 in this year's $5.7-million budget, to hire 22 additional corrections officers.

Masi says this would bring the jail staffing up to state standards.

The new corrections officers would be phased-in, with eight hired in May, eight hired in August, and six hired in November.

The current jail staff is 58.
