I like it... they've got to get this under control... 

 

Noel’s approach to curtailing the flow of drugs and other restricted items in the jail includes initiatives that differ from those of previous administrations. Detective Scottie Maples said Noel has designated a member of the correctional staff to serve as a full-time jail investigator. The sheriff’s office also is setting a new standard for those inmates found with contraband in the jail.
“If we find anything criminal inside our jail, they will be charged criminally,” Maples said. “I don’t know if that was happening before, but I can tell you, now, that is going to happen every single time.”

I look forward to ANY change in the Sheriff's Office. Longevity is the key to success, let's hope it lasts his entire term.

Love this line:

"As soon as we can get most of the articles out of the jail that are already in there, we can start from scratch and worry about how they are getting in,” Maples said. “This is a new administration. We are going to be handling things differently, and we are just getting started.”

 

 

Somebody's party is over.

I'm always amazed at the items smuggled in and how that's done . . . drugs, cellphone up the wazoo!  OUCH! 

 

I also understand that some will consume hand sanitizer because of the alcohol content . . . Ewwwww! 

 

This is a great start!  I wish them every success in preventing contraband from entering the premises.

The whole thing was a mess. They need to do like Floyd County and go to video visitation. No person to person contact with outside parties during your stay at the jail.

Totty. I'm pretty sure that it's been video visitation for quite some time at Clark County. It makes you wonder how the contraband is getting in.

Great to see steps are being taken to rid the jail of corrupt influences. The contraband was extensive in the jail during the Rodden administration. It was well know to most in the courts and law enforcement community. The past trustee system was an obvious way for contraband to enter the facility.  If some long term inmates would be offered immunity they could tell how the scam operates. People who make profit off a person's addiction should be arrested and prosecuted.

ICU I'm talking about the type where they stay home and video chat via computer. ...don't even bother coming near the jail to bring in anything....paid for by the users not thettaxpayers. ...next choice get an x-ray machine and everyone goes thru it...all day long

Totty. Sorry I misunderstood your post. I've never heard of the visitation method you're referring to. I wasn't aware that Floyd County uses this method. This seems like a very good alternative to what is used currently in Clark County. Still I wonder how much of the contraband is brought in with visitors and how much is brought in by other ways.

Yeah, the article said they found phones in the food in the commissary.

Sounds like our new sheriff means business. Great job Sir. Keep up the pressure.
This is what the citizens wanted and the criminals were afraid of.
THANK YOU !!!!!!!!!!!

Well looks like sheriff Noel is off to a good start. A previous post I made was why hasn't Rodden or Meyer did anything about this problem while they were sheriff? Noel has been sheriff less than a month and he is finding drugs and cell phones and the inmates found with these items will face criminal charges this is exactly what I want to see from our sheriff. Thanks Sheriff Noel

I wish they would also put a cap on how much money could be put on a inmates books. I know of a couple who gets at least 100 a week when they go in. Now you know that is to much a week for cheetos. What do you think they are doing with that kind of change a week . Smh

From what I have heard is that a pack of cigarettes is worth $800.00 in the jail they take one cigarette and turn it into 4 and sell them for $10.00 a piece. I also heard the inmates approach the jailers and offer them $600.00 for a pack of smokes. So if you have a jailer that has fallen on hard times the temptation must be intense. Not saying that all jailers to do this just saying it's a big temptation. So Grammy you are right they shouldn't let the inmates have that amount of money in their accounts it should be limited to 25.00 a week or something like that .

It was like the wild west in there I suppose... anything goes... 

 

I heard one news report that said the inmates cells had not been inspected for contraband for a number of years...

You've heard crap..This is BS, BS and more BS.... if it were true all the corrections officers would have retired by now.   Dollar amounts are not accurate. 

Cigs are High, but this is over blown... Most inmates are NOT rich, nor their families.

Humm..,Rodden, had affairs with prostitutes ???   Why would he have an issue with anything else going on ??  Think you answered your own question....

I don't believe it's the guards benefiting from money on the books. It's the criminals buying and selling contraband and their poker games . One of the individuals I know of was looking forward to going back. He told his mom there was a lot of money to be made there. Until he found out there's a new sheriff in town. That's why I think there should be a cap on the funds. Jmo
