Tippecanoe County Looking To Open Juvenile Jail

Last updated on Tuesday, October 9, 2007

(LAFAYETTE) - The Tippecanoe County commissioners are considering leasing a vacant building and turning it into a juvenile jail.

The commissioners meet behind closed doors this afternoon to discuss the possibility of taking over the former Mailcode Mail-processing equipment factory.

The county now spends one-and-a-half-million dollars a year to send juvenile offenders elsewhere, though running its own detention center may cost more.
