The DeWitt County Building will be doing a little reshuffling to move the Public Defender to a more secure area.
DeWitt County Sheriff Mike Walker says there was an incident earlier this month that could have turned ugly, however, protocols in place prevented the situation from escalating. Because of that, the office is going to be moving to a better location within the facility.
According to Sheriff Walker, there is a micro-filming area that is going to where their mail machine is, and that micro-film area will become the Public Defender's office. The Sheriff says this will provide more security for the entire staff of the Public Defender's office.
The space the Public Defender will move to is a "waste of good office space right now" according to the Sheriff. He adds it will reduce the number of people that go to the back side of the County Building.
