Renovation complete at Warren County Jail

Renovations at the Warren County Jail are now complete, and starting Wednesday, the jail will be able to house 83 additional prisoners.

The jail's capacity is being expanded from 197 prisoners to 280 prisoners.

The additional capacity means Warren County will no longer have to pay to house prisoners in the Butler County Jail, saving Warren County about $1 million a year.

The renovations were complete with the cooperation of the Warren County Commissioners and the State of Ohio Bureau of Adult Detention.
