W.Va. Regional Jail Authority is Looking for Feedback


The West Virginia Regional Jail and Correctional Facility Authority is taking a road trip so Authority members can get feedback from officials across the state.

The Jail Authority is conducting a series of meetings over the next several months at the 10 regional jails  to discuss jail costs.

In a news release, Executive Director Joe DeLong said having the meetings in the communities rather than Charleston will allow the Authority to not only discuss jail financing, but will also enable members to discuss things like customer service and relationship issues with local government officials.

Each meeting will start at 11 a.m. and will include a presentation on jail financing as well as a roundtable discussion.

The first meeting took place last week in Logan. The rest are scheduled between June and November.
