The LaRue County Detention Center accepted its first federal prisoner last month, not long after Fiscal Court entered into a contract with the U.S. Marshal’s Office.
It’s a small beginning to offset a potential $750,000 reduction in state funding at the jail. But County Judge-Executive Tommy Turner says the federal contract could produce up to $950,000 plus additional fees for transportation – which will more than offset the lost revenue caused by fewer state inmates being housed in LaRue County.
