Several local sheriff's departments on Wednesday discussed jail overcrowding and possible solutions.
One of which, according to the Brown County Sheriff's Department, is the assignment of 17-year-old inmates back to juvenile detention.
The Brown County jail's population issues can be tied to the types of crimes committed, Sheriff John Gossage said.
"We have a problem where people are serving longer sentences with serious crimes and that's what's kind of congesting the system," Gossage said.
No action was taken at the meeting.
