Extra jail cells generate millions of dollars for Ohio county

By Lauren Pack Staff Writer
Dayton Daily News (Ohio) 
 
HAMILTON, Ohio — While other area commissioners and sheriffs in the region are juggling beds and bad guys in a constant struggle to house law breakers, Butler County's jail sign always says "vacancy."

"We are the king of the jails right now," said Sheriff Richard Jones.

The 844 bed, state-of-the art facility that opened in 2002 on Hanover Street replaced a small, woefully antiquated jail on Court Street across from the Old Historic Courthouse. Coupled with the county's minimum security jail, Butler County can house 1,235 total prisoners. And, the number will grow in June.
