During Public Comments Constable Daniel Castle spoke on the current progress of upgrading BSRDC.
“The jail is a lot cleaner than it was and a lot safer than we started we should have a new administrator within a few weeks, Castle told the court. “The application process is done and interviews will start next week. Also, a new scanner has been purchased and is cutting down on the amount of contraband getting in the jail. We have also teamed up with ARC for an in house treatment program”.
