Jail cracks down on drugs
The Pike County Detention Center has a new machine to help crack down on contraband.
Recently the Pike County Fiscal Court approved for the detention center to purchase a full body scanning machine. “The machine gets an image of an inmate’s body and allows to see if an inmate would be sneaking drugs or weapons inside,” said Pike County Jailer, Brian Morris.
Morris said the machine is an investment to improve the quality of the jail and to help keep inmates safe and he believes that this machine will help him achieve his goal of making the Pike County Detention Center drug free.
