BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) –Bainbridge Public Safety headquarters now has two new holding cells for people who break the law.

The police department installed the temporary cells to house prisoners before sending them to a jail in Pelham.

The two cells are located inside the vehicle bay at the BPS headquarters. Each one has multiple locks and will house prisoners for up to two hours while being processed through the system.

"What'll happen is we book them, we fingerprint them, photograph them, process them, hopefully arrange bond through a bonding agency," says Major Walter Landrum. "If they can't make bond, notify Pelham and they send someone to pick them up."

The police station also says they plan to install security cameras near the holding cells this week so they can have 24-hr surveillance on anyone in being held.
