PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) - The Jackson County Sheriff's Office and the Board of Supervisors received a visit from Lieutenant Governor Tate Reeves Thursday.
Lt. Gov. Reeves and community leaders took a tour of the new Jackson County Adult Detention Center that is currently under construction. The new center is more than a decade in the making, and has a price tag of $27.6 million. Construction work at the jail was delayed by more than 50 days due to weather.
Officials estimate the new ADC will be up and running in September.
