With inmates returning to the DeWitt County jail in the next week, the County continues to get its ducks in a row to make sure they are prepared.
The DeWitt County's Public Safety Committee recently approved an amendment to an existing contract with Advanced Correctional Healthcare for Inmates Health Services. According to Sheriff Mike Walker, this company provides nursing services for the inmates.
Sheriff Walker says there are minimum requirements for the doctors. He notes there are several mandates for inmates care.
The DeWitt County jail is set to house its inmates again starting the first of April. Because of past budget scares stemming from the uncertainty around the power plant, inmates were housed in Piatt County.
