LPDC group commended
For quite some time, local government officials have been concerned about the deficit at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center.
They all agree that criminals have to stay off the street, but keeping them imprisoned has cost the parish more than it had to spend on them. So, late in 2012, a jail study committee was formed to attempt to deal with the issue.
After doing extensive research, the committee came back in February to suggest that the Lincoln Parish Detention Center Commission either take back over the jail or allow the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office to do so.
