The Washtenaw County Sheriff's Department is experiencing a severe staff shortage, particularly in its jail operations.  Despite some media reports this  week, there has not been a "State of Emergency" declaration.  Sheriff Jerry Clayton joined WEMU's David Fair to clarify the situation, as it stands today, and to discuss ongoing efforts to address staffing needs.
