New Jail

Andrew commissioners last week signed contracts to replace the current 105 year-old jail with a new 63-bed jail. Andrew County sheriff Bryan Atkins says he spent $111,000 last year sending his overflow prisoners to other facilities. Now, he says, that trend can reverse. The nearly $5 million project is set to break ground in May, with the new Andrew County jail open for business next May. It will also include video arraignment technology so high-risk prisoners won't have to leave jail for their court appearances.
