Fulton Board Approves Purchase of Jail Locks | Print |

At its June 19, 2013 meeting, the Fulton County Board of Commissioners approved $4.7 million for retrofit of locking control systems for the Fulton County Jail.

The existing locking systems and components were installed during the original construction of the facility.  The existing system no longer fully meet the needs of the jail.

The new locking control system is one step in addressing requirements of a consent order related to the Fulton County jail.

“I am pleased that the Board has approved this important investment in the security of our jail,” said Chairman John H. Eaves.  “The jail locks are an important step in addressing  the terms of the consent order, and in protecting the safety of jail employees, contractors, visitors, and the inmates themselves.”
