Sheman, I agree! How come Old Lycoming is always doing everything, I mean this Bill guy always has his nose in everything! He's ahead of the D.U.I. checkpoints and roving patrols in the county, DOT Truck checks and now this! Doesn't he have enough too do in his own town! This should be handle by the Sheriff Department or the State Poilice along with the other things.

The problem is the same. The cost is passed to the offender. In a perfect world ex-offenders would obtain decent employment and pay fines, restitution and associated costs. In this world very few can obtain these jobs. The individual is then violated for non-compliance with a condition (meaning costs). They are committed to the county. Over and over again. Then we lack housing space and need new and larger prisons. The tail is wagging the dog and we pay for it.

I don't understand the quote in reference to fingerprinting, "with 2,000 offenders coming through the system every year it's easy to miss some". What other elements of an arrest can be overlooked if we're missing fingerprinting? Are there scenarios where you don't fingerprint that the state has a mediocre average to begin with?

Welcome to the 21st Century!!!!

It surely was surprising to hear such a facility wasn't (already) in-place, locally.
