Changes coming for jail

Some changes are on the horizon for the Shelby County Detention Center, with new technology and an increase in booking fees.

At Tuesday night’s meeting, magistrates approved Jailer Darrell Cox’s request to purchase a body scanner that he said is badly needed.

“They [scanners] will be like the ones you see at the airport,” he said. “We can see if they’ve got drugs or weapons hid on them – anything.”

Cox said the scanners, which employ X-ray technology, are perfectly safe to use.
