A change in how Bartholomew County Sheriffs sales will be processed is coming in April.
Department officials say that contracting through SRI Inc.s Sheriffs Sale program will reduce unnecessary administrative burdens placed on BCSOs Sheriff Sales/Sex Offender Coordinator. The change is expected to allow him to allocate more time toward sex offender enforcement functions. Last year, BCSO scheduled 141 Sheriff sales. SRI is an Indianapolis company that assists several Indiana counties with such sales.
BCSO Sheriffs Sales will continue to be conducted as usual at the Bartholomew County Sheriffs Office, 543 Second Street, Columbus. Funding for SRI will come from fees collected from sheriff sales.
