Miller County Jail to be repaired

Posted: Updated:

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - There is a move to make some much needed repairs at the Miller County Jail, due to recent escapes.

Wednesday night the Miller County Quarum Court voted to pay $800,000 for repairs at the jail.

Sheriff Ron Stovall says the money will be put to good use.

"They're allowing us to hire four additional detention officers and an additional investigator," says Stovall. "That should make a considerable difference in the safety and security of that system out there."

 Today, the quarum met with a contractor to come up with a plan to repair the jail. The contractor will then set out bids for various projects.
