Description

This investigation revealed a $4.4 million, failure -ridden security system that contributed to a nine month delay in opening the county's new jail, escalated the costs to taxpayers of building the county's jail project and put corrections officers in harm's way because of malfunctioning cell doors and misfiring alarms.
