In light of recent violent crimes the Bibb County Sheriff's Office says it just doesn't have the man power to enforce a teen curfew. Sheriff Jerry Modena says he believes a curfew won't put a complete end to crime in Bibb County.
According to Sheriff Jerry Modena, his department is understaffed by about 20 deputies.
Modena says he is also concerned with potential overcrowding at the law enforcement center if deputies pick up more teenagers.
"Consequently, you service one way then you have a problem the other way, because using those deputies to watch over these people takes them of the road and brings them in here in kind of a babysitting way," says Modena.
