The Washington Parish Sheriff's Office has cut five deputies from its staff and reduced two others to part-time status.
Chief Deputy Mike Haley tells The Daily News the moves were made April 23 and were necessary because of the expiration of funding through a federal Community Oriented Policing Services grant.
The cuts included office personnel. Deputies affected were not patrol officers, he says.
