Derek Dowsett is the Producer of the County Seat. Now entering his 11th season of the program, he has received what he considers a "Crash Course" in County Government.

This week on the County Seat we discuss the issues of jail overcrowding in Salt Lake County. Neighboring counties like Tooele County are stepping up to help provide some beds and help as overcrowding continues but what are the things Salt Lake County can do directly to fix the issue? On this episode, we’ll discuss what brought on the problem, look at how long term the issue is expected to last, how many counties the issue impacts and how they are dealing with it now and in the future.
Joining us in a panel discussion on the subject this week are Tooele County Sheriff Paul Wimmer and Salt Lake County Sheriff Jim Winder.
