Destroy documents? That's the job

Destroy documents? That's the job

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A full-time position has been created with the sole purpose to destroy documents.

At Monday night's Craighead County Quorum Court meeting, Justices voted to move a part-time position to full-time.

The person in this position will be tasked with bringing the county into compliance concerning the destruction of records involving juveniles.

State law says the records must be destroyed when a juvenile turns 18.

Deputies must now go back several decades to determine which records need to be destroyed.
