PRINEVILLE, OR -- The new Crook County Jail opened Monday, and deputies walked the 19 inmates living in the old jail across the street to their new home.


Sheriff John Gautney called the transition an historic event for Crook County. The old jail had been used since 1968, and the new facility is modern, with technology designed to help Corrections Staff with safety and security.


Soon, the 26 Crook County inmates currently serving time in the Jefferson County jail will be transported to Prineville for the remainders of their sentences.

 

Crook County voters approved a $10 million bond measure in November 2016 to pay for the jail.
