Plan presented to fix Hinds Detention Center

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Hinds County Sheriff Tyrone Lewis says a plan is in place to correct the problems at the detention center in Raymond. Now, all he needs is the money to address those issues.

Lewis says he's presented documents to county leaders that would address the issues a Hinds County grand jury found at the facility.  

The sheriff's department was given six months to find a new jail administrator.  

Pod C renovations are almost complete but inmates cannot move into that portion of the jail until there is proper staffing in place or a special request is made.  

No dollar figure was released by Lewis.
