Kalamazoo County Sheriff Richard Fuller pleased with new jail

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- The new jail expansion in Kalamazoo is coming together as the sheriffs department hires staff to run it. Kalamazoo County Sheriff Rick Fuller says that the new jail cells are designed differently from the old ones, with heavy duty glass instead of bars. He says that makes the facility much quieter than the old jail. Also, Fuller says it'll soon have video visitation set up so staff won't have to physically escort any inmates to see visitors. Fuller says that's safer and less costly. They're in the process of hiring administrative staff to run the facility.
