Today Grayson County leaders will hear the results of a two-and-a-half-year study done by consulting group Pulitzer and Bogard.

The group was hired recently to reevaluate the county's criminal justice system and look into the possibility of building a new jail.

Some of the recommendations have already been implemented, such as hiring special prosecutors to speed up the court process.

Now Grayson County Sheriff Keith Gary says officials will go over the group's suggestions on improving the jail. They plan to advise whether they should build a new jail or renovate the current facility.

The sheriff says there aren't enough maximun security beds in the jail, and by law they have top separate high and low security inmates.

Gary says the public is invited to attend. They also invited members of various political groups like the NAACP and the League of Woman Voters.

Here's information on tonight's meeting:
