Carter County Jail Planning to Open in Early June
The last projects are being completed and the new Carter County Jail as almost ready for prisoners. All of the construction work has been completed with exception to the installation of 32-video cameras that were found to be necessary. Some of those cameras monitor important areas dealing with suicide prevention, holding cells and blind spots. There are workers installing tile in the corridors and the administrative sections of the jail that tend to reflect more light than the old bare concrete floors. Final installations include and tamper proof steel ladders for the bunk beds, dishwashers, laundry equipment, soap dispensers, phones, and curtains. A United Way fundraiser fed more than 200-people jail cuisine and a scheduled lock-in of some youth groups is planned before the jail is fully operational. Every system will be tested before the grand opening in early June. (bg)
