HELPING HANDS

Inmates incarcerated at the Decatur County Detention Center were moved to the county’s new facility on S. Ireland Street Tuesday. Fifteen Decatur County Detention Center deputies and one Decatur County Sheriff’s Department deputy were assisted by approximately 27 Marion County officers and two K9 units. The inmates were reportedly fully cooperative and there were no problems associated with the move. The new detention center is now fully operational, though some contents from the old facility are still being moved to the new site.
