Tanner, in his presentation to commissioners Tuesday afternoon, said he is losing officers to surrounding agencies due to the county's salary structure, and asked commissioners to increase the salary for starting officers by 10 percent over current budgeted levels.
"We are expending large sums of money to be a training facility for these other agencies," Tanner told commissioners, citing the loss of several officers to other agencies due to the county pay structure.
Tanner shared with commissioners the results of a study of the starting salaries of several local law enforcement agencies - all with starting salaries above what Navarro County offers.
According to Tanner's figures, the Ennis Police Department's starting officer salary is $41,849; Corsicana Police, $41,338; Waxahachie Police, $39,000; Navarro College Police, $39,000; Corsicana ISD, $35 to $40,000; and Texas DPS, $47,000.
"We start at $36,000," he said.
Tanner said the county spends significant amounts of money testing and training potential law enforcement applicants.
"Once they come on board, there are other expenses," he added, including uniforms and additional training, only to be lost to other agencies that offer more pay.
"We're at the point in time where we're going to have to compete," Tanner said. He said he didn't expect to pay more than the other agencies, but did ask "to have a level playing field."
The sheriff also pointed to a 50 percent increase in citation revenue his department has generated in the first six months of 2013 over year-ago figures as a sign of increased efficiency within the department, adding it was accomplished despite being down by three to five officers during the period.
Tanner was the first office holder to make a formal presentation to commissioners.

Navarro County Sheriff Elmer Tanner tells the Corsicana Daily Sun (http://bit.ly/1ismEJ7) the shooting happened just before noon Monday outside a house in the town of Eureka, about 12 miles southeast of Corsicana and 65 miles south of Dallas.
Tanner says the toddler was shot in the head at close range with a 20-gauge shotgun in a shed next to the house. Tanner says the shooter appears to have been an 8-year-old child, but it's still uncertain who discharged the firearm.
Tanner also said deputies believe the shooting to have been accidental, but the investigation is still open.
