Jail tour

Tuesday, May 6, 2014
Red Willow County, Neb., Sheriff Gene Mahon stands in his office in the new county jail and law enforcement center expected to be completed by mid-summer. Mahon, three of his jailers, sheriff's department office manager Diana Wilkinson, county commissioners, county clerk Pauletta Gerver and Beckenhauer Construction senior site superintendent Carl Gibbs toured the jail under construction Monday morning, all donning "booties" to protect newly-applied epoxy floors. Sheriff Mahon plans to move his jailers in for a week of familiarization before any prisoners take up residence. He said he would like to find citizen-volunteers willing to spend one night in jail to help his jailers in their training. (Connie Jo Discoe/McCook Gazette)
