Hundreds of Hopkins County residents turned out to take a good look at the new 55,000 square feet County Jail facility during an open house Tuesday afternoon, December 1. Tours took them through the facility. They saw new office space for Sheriff’s Office administration, investigators and deputies, jail exercise areas, cooking and laundry facilities, dispatch area, visitation areas and a courtroom. The tour included visits to cells. There was also a brief program. County Judge Robert Newsom presided and he introduced County Commissioners and county elected officials. Former County Judge Chris Brown, who was judge when the jail project was put to the people for a vote, also spoke. Those present also heard from Sheriff Butch Adams as well as representatives from Sedalco Construction Company and DRG Architects. The Sheriff’s cousin, an employee of DRG Architects, surprised Sheriff Adams,a huge Dolly Parton fan, with a hardhat signed by Ms. Parton in pink. Inmates are expected to be moved into the new facility once a phone visitation system is installed and is approved by the Texas Commission on Jail Standards.
