Sheriff calls Press Conference on looming jail budget crisis.

Sheriff John Montgomery

Baxter County Detention Center

          Baxter County Sheriff John Montgomery will hold a Press Conference on Thursday, May 3, 2012 at 2:00 PM in front of the Baxter County Detention Center in Mountain Home to discuss the looming budgetary crisis facing the Detention Center and to offer a proposal to address the situation.

            For several years, the costs of medical services, pharmaceuticals, and food for jail inmates have steadily increased to a level that is beyond the capability of the Detention Center budget.  Those continuously rising costs, combined with the increase in jail inmate populations and the impact of the Prison Reform Bill (Arkansas’ Act 570 of 2011), have created a fiscal crisis.

            Sheriff Montgomery will discuss the situation in detail at the Press Conference.  The public is invited to attend and learn more about the pressing issues facing the Baxter County Detention Center.
