Sheriff Garner Eyes Opening Jail with Private Help
Reagan County Sheriff Jeff Garner told the Reagan County Commissioners' Court he is in discussions with a private company about the possibility of opening the jail back up for operation.
Garner said the talks are in the early stages, but feels Reagan County's jail is a good fit for the company, CEC, Inc.
"They currently operate the Ector County Correctional Center," Garner said. "They have a source of inmates in the area that aren't federal. I think adding our facility to their mix may make sense."
