Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims began her third term in office last week. Since she became sheriff in 2006, law enforcement and criminal justice have seen massive changes: big budget cuts, mandatory jail releases, realignment and sentencing reform.

In this interview with Valley Public Radio, Mims talks about the challenges of rebuilding the department for the future, the state of the county’s jail population after years of early releases,  and about criticism involving the consolidation of the responsibilities of coroner under the office of the sheriff.
