For the first time since 2008, the Lincoln Parish Detention Center is running with a month-to-month profit thanks to the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office and Jim Tuten, the warden for the LPDC.
Skip Russell, president for the Lincoln Parish Police Jury, as well as on the Detention Center Board of Commissioners, said he has been getting calls from people who are concerned that their tax dollars are covering the $1.7 million deficit for the detection center.
