Sonoma County officials are warning hundreds of county employees they could lose their jobs this year.

The Board of Supervisors will begin the budget process at today's meeting. Supervisors are considering reductions in community policing, gang prevention, transportation and public works.

The sheriff's office could bear the largest portion of the cuts with up to 100 jobs. Sonoma County needs to slash spending by 25 percent.
