Much needed security updates are coming to the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office.
Due to bad leaks in the office, workers began construction for a new roof last week. New security cameras were recently installed in the jail. Once the roof is finished, more security cameras will be placed outside of the jail as well.
They are also working on repairing the cells inside the jail.
Marshall County Sheriff, Phil Sims, said, “We got bids to fix the interior of the jail cells, and that bid has already been awarded. It was a half a million dollar bid. They’re in the process now of fabricating all the metals and getting all the equipment ordered.”
Sims says the repairs to the jail cells will take at least six months to complete.
