The old Parker Center jail is 60 years old and the new state of the art "podular jail" will take more staff to operate and they do not have the funds to hire people to open the place.
How does Canyon County propose to run a new "podular jail" with fewer people when Los Angeles Police Department is on record saying it will take more staff to run a podular jail based on state and federal requirements?
The short answer is we taxpayers are being led down the primrose path on the costs of running a new "podular jail" by the Commishes and Sheriff. Here is a link to the LA story of woe on their new jail costs, No Money To Open New LA Jail.
The photo in this post is of Parker Center and the new "podular jail" going up in the background. The new jail is completed but no cash on hand to open the place for the foreseeable future. This same thing can happen in Canyon County.
