3 in a separate tax debate, tippecanoe county sheriff bob goldsmith says the office is in urgent need of more funding. this comes after a public hearing about a local income tax increase to benefit public safety.if the county approves the public safety tax increase, citizens could be looking at paying point-18- percent more in income taxes a year.goldsmith says with the rate the county is growing, it has gotten harder for officers to effectively do their job. community outreach is a pillar for the sheriff's office but it hasn't been on the forefront for some time now. 3<we're not doing the citizens of tippecanoe county any favors because we're so short staffed, we can't be proactive, we're being reactive in everything we do, now a lot of police work is reactive in nature but there's a lot of proactive things we can do.> goldsmith says the money will go straight to providing resources for officers and it cannot go towards building a new jail.he does not get to vote in the process. 3 purdue's campus welcomed
