  • Underwood’s first two months as LaRue Jailer

    Over two months have passed since Jamie Underwood took office as LaRue County Jailer at the start of 2019. Underwood won over former Jailer Johnny Cottrill during the 2018 General Election by a vote of 2,728 Underwood to 2,128 Cottrill. Underwood and his team have worked hard to make changes and start various new programs within the Jail.

    The first new program Underwood has initiated is the “female work program” where the female inmates get out of the Jail and clean the community. This is in addition to the inmates that are already helping within the community.
