The state of the economy is causing a local law enforcement agency to reduce its force.

Washington County Sheriff Larry Mincks says officials with the Sheriff's department are working with the county commissioners as a way to prevent any layoffs from happening.

However, even though no jobs will be lost, Sheriff Mincks says those retiring in the sheriff's department will not be replaced.
