Inspection report shows only two issues with Jennings County jail
The 2019 Annual Jail Report for the Jennings County Sheriff's Office was released this week.

Along with information about operations conducted throughout last year by the sheriff, deputies and jail staff, the state Department of Corrections found only two negative responses to the 291 questions asked by inspectionors.

First, there are not enough beds for inmates, and the ratio of inmates to the number of showers available was too great.

"We are going to address these two items over the next couple of years, said Sheriff Kenny Freeman in the release.

The report details progress of the sheriff's work-release program, which provides employment for eligible inmates at Rose Acres Farms and Decatur Plastic Products.

The report also details the number of inmates booked and released through 2019 - a total of 2,362 for both categories, as well as the top 10 offenses for which inmates served time.

Possession of methamphetamine was first, followed by operating while intoxicated, wanted on a warrant, court orders, theft, possession of narcotic or legend drug violation, criminal confinement, maintaining a common nuisance, possession of marijuana and domestic battery.

See next week's paper for additional details.
