CRIMINAL JUSTICE PROJECT
Saline County Criminal Justice Complex Forum
Wednesday, October 22, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. Sam’s Chapel in Pioneer Hall at Kansas Wesleyan University
Saline County Sheriff Glen Kochanowski said there will be a 30 to 45 minute presentation on the need for the complex, with the remaining time used to answer questions from the public about the proposed 1/2 cent tax ($46.5 million dollar budget) that is on the ballot in November. In addition to the Sheriff, there will be representatives from Community Corrections, County Attorney’s Office the District Court and the Criminal Justice Advisory Committee.
This is not just a jail expansion.
Based on the recommendation of the Citizens Jail / Criminal Justice Advisory Committee the Board of County Commissions on August 12, 2014 adopted a Resolution allowing the Citizens to vote on the question of funding a Criminal Justice Complex.
The Criminal Justice Complex will be built at the existing location of the Sheriff's Office and Jail. The complex will include the Saline County Attorney's office, District Court Judges court rooms, the Clerk of the District Court facilities, Court Services, Community Corrections offices and a jail addition.
The Sales Tax / Bond Election question will be on the ballot November 4, 2014.
