Nashville - Inmates in Berrien County have a new home. "This is something that's been needed in Berrien County for the last 20 years," said Sheriff Jerry Brogdon.
Construction is complete on a new 30,000 square foot law enforcement complex, with 10 administrative offices, 72 inmate beds, and room for expansion. "We can bring this place up to a 130 bed facility," said Brogdon.
Sheriff Brogdon says the building's most important feature is organized and strict security. "Everything is solid concrete ceilings," said Brogdon. And for the first time ever, each department has its own work space. "Investigators have their own offices, drug agents have their own space, the deputies have their own squad room, we have our own courtroom here," said Brogdon.
And eventually, the facility will house an Enhanced 911 center. "Hopefully in 2005, we'll have that up and going," said Brogdon.
For more than 20 years, Berrien County inmates have been housed at the old jail. The new facility is much larger, and can hold three times the number of inmates. "This should take the sheriff's department forward for the next 30, 40, even 50 years," said Brogdon.
The total costs of the building is about four million dollars. "At the end of 2005, this place is paid for at no increase in property tax, its being paid for with one percent sales tax and funds the sheriff's department donated," said Brogdon.
The administrative staff has already moved into the new jail. Inmates will move in by the end of the month.
