Calhoun County Jail Hiring Deputies To Keep Up With ICE Demand
Calhoun County Jail Hiring Deputies To Keep Up With ICE Demand
The jail is near capacity, thanks in large part to the increase in outside inmates being housed. When the Calhoun County Jail was constructed in 1994, it was purposefully built with more beds so that way they could house inmates from outside the county; by far the largest entity housing detainees is ICE, and the number is rising; in 2016, there was an average of 98 ICE detainees, and it’s now at an average of 220.
