Mayor Barry sends letter regarding jail relocation

Here’s an update on the jail relocation saga.

Lonell Mathews, Director, Mayor’s Office of Neighborhoods and Community Engagement, said Mayor Megan Barry has sent a letter to Sheriff Daron Hall to address three key issues:

  1. Keeping Ezell Park open to the community for soccer and other activities.
  2. The Mayor suggesting the Hill Detention Center as an alternative location to release inmates.
  3. Need for more community conversation and input to determine the best location for the requested Sheriff’s Administrative Headquarters.
