Crook County’s Jail is full and the new Sheriff knows they can't afford to put in more beds. Sheriff Jim Hensley took over just this week, but knows jail overcrowding is not a new problem: “Crook County, it's a very old jail. It's only 16 beds and we currently rent 16 beds from Jefferson County.” Sheriff Hensley says the County will have to consider such alternatives as electronic monitoring to help reduce the number of people in the jail. In the past week, 22 inmates were released early or turned away because of overcrowding at the jail.
