Verbal agreement made on transfer of Escambia Co. jail
ESCAMBIA COUNTY -- Escambia County and the Sheriff's Office have reached a verbal agreement on the transfer of the county jail. Commissioners agreed to take control of the jail after Sheriff David Morgan asked for a bigger budget.
Now that they've come to terms, the county attorney will put it all in writing with a Memorandum of Understanding.
It covers funding, personnel, third-party contracts and other operations. A county spokesman expects the memo to be approved next month and the county will assume jail operations on October 1.
