Hearing held over maintaining or closing Armstrong County Jail


A public hearing was held tonight in Claude over maintaining or closing the Armstrong County jail. 

It was held at the Armstrong County Courthouse.

This comes after several issues at the jail, including most recently an inmate escaping in February of this year. 

“The main thing I wanted to accomplish was to let everybody know that this is a complex issue and this is just one phase of it, and to me, it’s just as important or more important than closing the jail, or maintaining the jail is seeing the process we use to come to that conclusion,” said Armstrong County Judge, Hugh Reed.
