Improvements needed at Dewitt County Jail


Dewitt County – The Dewitt County Sheriff Jered Shofner says his county jail is in need of some renovations.


The facility which is less than 20 years old is beginning to show its age. Since the jail houses federal inmates and some inmates from Cook County the fees the county collects for housing those inmates could help offset the cost of needed repairs.


A recent water main break a caused the facility to partially evacuate.
