PERKINS TWP.

Erie County's new program to reduce jail overcrowding is scheduled to begin Sept. 1.

That's the target date county officials have set to hire a new court services officer who will oversee the county's electronic monitoring program, using ankle bracelets to keep track of defendants awaiting trial.
