Board gets a look at new jail cell option
December 3, 2021
The Carlton County Board of Commissioners examined a model jail cell as part of a regular meeting on Nov. 22.
The board met in the Carlton County Transportation building and a jail cell was mounted on a truck and brought to the garage there from the manufacturer in Huron, South Dakota.
The cell featured bunks for two offenders, a small shower, a toilet and shelves for hygiene supplies and seating.
Buddy Johns, a representative of the manufacturer, Coastal Detention Holdings, said the cells are built in the manufacturing facility and brought to the site where a new jail is constructed.
