Phones In The Intake And Reception Area Of The F. DeWayne Beggs Detention Center

Apr 02, 2018

Phones in the intake and reception area of the F. DeWayne Beggs Detention Center allow inmates to make calls as they are brought into the facility. The sheriff’s cash accounts, including commissary and phone accounts, generate income for the jail and were a point of contention in a recent lawsuit instigated by former sheriff Joe Lester against the Board of County Commissioners. The lawsuit was dropped after Lester resigned from office.
