New deputies, new cruisers, and new bulletproof vests are in Richland County Sheriff Steve Sheldon's 2014 budget proposal.

He discussed his roughly $6-million spending plan with the commissioners Tuesday.

Sheldon is still trying to get staffing back to its level before the recession, and plans to hire ten deputies and five clerks.

The sheriff also wants to buy 24 cruisers to replace vehicles with more 100,000 miles on them. But they won't be brand new cars.

Sheldon has a program of buying two-year-old cruisers at a cost of $7,000-$8,000 each, far below the $25,000 cost of a new cruiser.

Sheldon also needs to replace 45 bulletproof vests for $72,000, because the five-year warranty on the current vests is expiring.
