Mark Pogrebin on Overtime Pay in Denver Sheriff’s Department

Professor Mark Pogrebin is quoted in the Denver Post story “Denver Sheriff Department spent $14 million on OT in 2016 despite surge in hiring” that was published on Aug. 9, 2017. “Corrections experts warn the sheriff is taking a risk by relying on overtime to run the city’s two jails. Excessive overtime not only is costly to taxpayers, it creates a dangerous environment inside the jails, with deputies working too many hours in a high-stress job, said Mark Pogrebin, a criminology professor at the University of Colorado Denver.”
