Doesn't the local Sheriff run the county jail? I know they do in L.A. and Orange counties here in CA. Or, do the deputies take a suspect to the local police HQ for fingerprinting?
My point is that they can't fingerprint CCW applicants, but they can fingerprint criminal suspects.
Which is a variation on the old saw, 'justice delayed is justice denied."
Sheriff runs the County jail, yes. They’re understaffed. I suspect most suspects brought to the county jail are apprehended by State or local police. Coquille PD is only a few blocks from the county jail. Probably a turf thing with the fingerprinting, or maybe it’s statutory. Bureaucracy in action. Or inaction.
