KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- The Kalamazoo County Sheriffs Department is ready to unveil its new jail expansion.

Sheriff Richard Fuller says that the facility, which is right behind the old jail, has state of the art technology and design, intended to improve efficiency. Gone are the rows of linear cells with bars, and now they've got pod designs with glass so that the inmates can be seen at all times. Sheriff Fuller also says the 23 million dollars project means no more overcrowding:An open house and ribbon cutting were planned for Tuesday afternoon, beginning at three.
