JCSO Cracking Down on Contraband Smuggling
The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office has a new tool to help prevent illegal contraband from being smuggled into the jail. The JCSO Detention Center recently installed a body scanner similar to those found in airports in an attempt to stem the flow of drugs and other contraband into the facility and reduce the risk of inmate drug overdoses. Earlier this year, an investigation led to multiple arrests for charges related to having controlled substances on jail premises. Officers began using the scanner this fall.
