Visitation hours at the Elkhart County Jail have been cut because of a shortage in staff.

The Elkhart County Corrections Department is down 28 percent in staffing right now.

Now, visitation will only happen Thursday through Sunday from 4-10 pm.

We spoke with Elkhart County Sheriff Brad Rogers on Sunday who warned of these cut backs.

Rogers also tells us the county is having a hard time hiring patrol and corrections officers.

He believes it's because of low wages; some of the lowest in the region.
