KC Sheriff’s Department Reviewing Ways to Cut Cost of Jail Expansion

The Knox County Sheriff’s Department is looking over ways to cut the estimated cost of an expansion of the Knox County Jail.  The County is looking to add another wing to the current Jail facility, and eventually build a new Work-Release Center on the Jail grounds.

Knox County Sheriff Doug Vantlin knows the need for the expansion has been building…

 

Vantlin also believes at this time, the addition bill will be much higher than the original Jail‘s cost in the late 2000’s…

 

Sheriff’s officials, the Knox County Commissioners, and Knox County Council will work together to reduce the Jail’s cost as they can.
