Sheriff Jewell Williams told members of Philadelphia City Council during budget hearings that significant improvements have been made in the Office of the Sheriff of Philadelphia City and County over the past two years.

“We have come a long way in a short period of time,” said Sheriff Williams yesterday, “and have made many strides toward being as transparent, professional, and efficient as possible.”

“We are currently in the process of installing a new computer system, have taken on a new K-9 Unit and Bike Unit, and are continuing to train our staff and upgrade equipment at every opportunity,” he said.

Still, he explained further, there continues to be a need for more deputy sheriffs to properly protect and staff the courts, including the new Family Court scheduled to open in October, 2014.

“We will need an estimated 127 deputies just to staff that building alone,” said Sheriff Williams.
