Currently 30 people are employed. We have 13 full-time floor deputies. 4 dispatchers, 2 cooks and 11 part-time deputies.
We received an unannounced inspection by DOC on September 26th. and we received no violations of non-compliance.
For the first time we received a $ 2,907 check from our medical provider because we did not use all of the 25,000 medical cost umbrella coverage in FY 11/12.
We have adopted every state road in Adair County not currently taken by other agencies for roadside cleanup in which Pee Wee Sinclair oversees.
Our jail garden program was featured with 7 other jail gardens in the most recent issue of the state wide County Line Magazine. So far this year the garden has saved us an estimated $ 2,612.00
One of the things that set’s us apart from many other jails is the programs we offer to inmates. We hope these programs help them adjust to society and become productive citizens when they’re released. We currently provide training for GED, bible study, church services, Sunday school, Celebrate Recovery, Life Skills, anger management and we just started parenting classes for women. These programs are offered free by volunteers from area churches and I appreciate them so much.
