Budget cuts are forcing officials in this Oregon city to think outside the box.

According to the Associated Press:

The Josephine County Sheriff’s office is considering the use of volunteers to help process crime scenes. The Daily Courier of Grants Pass reports the sheriff’s office is reeling from layoffs and budget cuts. The program would train volunteers on how to assist with background investigations and the processing of burglaries and certain other crime scenes.

We’ve seen many communities employ citizens in volunteer roles, we see them around Kennewick¬† especially in those old retired police cars.¬† They take care of numerous tasks that would tie up patrol officers for hours.¬† But this would be pretty cool to get to comb through crime scenes and stuff!
