Since January, Tanner has been asking for help from the commissioners to stem the tide of personnel losses in his department, both within the jail and patrol.
One of his arguments has been that other Navarro County police departments can offer more money, and he reiterated that point Thursday.
"Most of the things we're discussing today are not a secret. Over the last year we've come before you on a number of occasions to transfer money to pay overtime," Tanner said, adding: "I'm not dumb enough to think it's all about money. I'm sure there's any number of things where people desire to no longer work in law enforcement."
However, having competitive salaries would go a long ways toward solving some of the department's problems, Tanner added.
...
It's a disincentive for people to stay with the department long-term, and the $100 a month isn't enough reason to take on more headaches, Tanner said.
...
"We think the best option is to accept the restructuring of salaries," Tanner told the commissioners.
...
"We're just trying to get closer so we don't have so many people jumping ship," Tanner said. "We're trying to retain our people and recruit people."
The department has 12 positions currently open, most of those in the jail.
"We've done everything we can humanly do to recruit," Tanner said. "The common denominator is 'what are you going to pay?'"
Tanner said the department has done a good job of returning money to the county, and he estimates the agency returned $850,000 to the county's general fund this year. They're also saving money by buying used vehicles, and saving old vehicles for parts.
He said some other sheriff's offices make additional money by charging the cities for housing Class A prisoners, by charging for use of the firing range, and for doing dispatch for other entities.
Part of the restructuring would be to put in grades of officers, so there would be a patrol officer I, and patrol officer II, for example, with those more experienced officers making about $1,500 more a year, under the proposal.
County Judge H.M. Davenport complimented Tanner on the proposal, saying that he'd proposed a similar step program for the county about eight years ago, but it wasn't accepted.

Navarro County Sheriff Elmer Tanner said Thursday that he's waiting for DNA results on evidence taken from the home. Tanner says authorities have interviewed people in their efforts to determine why Ronquillo-Ovalle might have shot her family, but he had nothing definitive to say publicly.
Tanner said he was hoping to separate facts from rumor in the incident.
