Officials: Jail needs new locks

GREENFIELD — Hancock County officials are poised to spend roughly $350,000 on new jail cell locks, but they’re mum on the reason.

The expenditure will come in addition to $150,000 spent earlier this year on a new computerized control system to make the jail more secure.

Sheriff Mike Shepherd and Maj. Brad Burkhart said the new control system pointed out the need for an upgrade to cell locks. They consider the need an emergency but would not elaborate on why.
