(BLOOMINGTON) - Some Monroe County Jail inmates are about to get new outfits.
Sheriff Jim Kennedy announced he's going back to history. The typical black and white horizontal striped uniforms will be used.
Kennedy says the outfits raise visibility and also act as a way to differentiate between populations of certain cell blocks.
So far, the sheriff hasn't insisted the inmates wear pink underwear. That's what an Arizona sheriff makes inmates wear, along with chain gang stripes.
