Regional jail taking shape
Members of the RSW Regional Jail Authority got a preview on Thursday of the new jail facility that will house up to 375 inmates and employ about 140 people when it opens in 2014. The $82 million jail, which is under construction on U.S. 340/522 in Warren County, will feature computer-controlled plumbing that prevents toilets from being deliberately clogged, 70-square-foot cells containing two bunks with pre-installed stainless steel fixtures, and “outdoor” recreation areas with stainless steel screen roofs where inmates are exposed to daylight.
