Default Bell County Detention Center to close


BELL COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — Citing safety violations, the Kentucky Department of Corrections has ordered the Bell County Detention Center closed.

Jail officials were notified Friday that the facility must be completely evacuated by 5 p.m. on Feb. 5, 2020.

The closure stems from the continued failure of the jail to remedy its inoperable smoke evacuation system, a critical life safety component of detention facilities.
