After a two and a half year study on the criminal justice system in Grayson County, the sheriff's department officials say a new jail might be in store for the future. Last week, KXII reported that for the first time in 15 years. Grayson County is no longer having to house inmates out of county.
Next Monday Grayson County leaders will hear the results of a study done by a consultant hired to reevaluate Grayson's criminal justice system. Some of those findings have already been put in motion, resulting in the zero inmates out of county.
Grayson County Sheriff Keith Gary says the consultant will reveal his ideas with what should be done with the jail and whether the county should hire a contractor to build a new jail or whether the county should renovate the current facility.
Either way Sheriff Gary says he wants to hear what the public thinks.
"I hope they're excited, let's put it this way, I hope they're excited because this is a blueprint for the future, and everyone knows that Grayson is a fast growing county."
