NEWPORT, AR (KAIT) - Inmates of a local sheriff's department have a new home in a new jail.
All the prisoners in the former Jackson County Detention Center are now in the new facility, according to a sheriff's department Facebook post early Wednesday morning.
They are now housed in the new jail at 3300 Theatre Drive in Newport.
The new 38,000-square-foot facility, which cost $8 million to complete, allows for 112 beds.
Despite so many new changes, one thing remains the same, the address for the facility: P.O. Box 647, Newport, AR 72112.
