Sheriff Jordan Speaks to Kiwanis Club

Sheriff Cranford Joran

Sheriff Cranford Jordan was guest speaker for the August 27th Kiwanis club meeting. The sheriff gave each member a list of common scams and frauds. Some of the ones seen around here include ticket scams (selling tickets for something they don’t have), grandparent scams and the IRS scams. The IRS only contacts people through the mail not on the telephone. There are many scams out there. Be careful who you give your information to and never put money on a card to send somewhere.

The main focus of Sheriff Jordan’s talk was the new jail. Hopefully, they will be in the new jail by the end of September. They were supposed to be finished in March but had weather delays. He passed around pictures of the various areas that he talked about.

The control room is above the 2 isolation cells and there are windows so the operator can see them. Everything in the jail is operated from the control room. There are no windows but plenty of skylights. There are also no bars. The prisoners are kept in pods and there are 30 inmates per pod. The new jail capacity is 150.
