Judge: Staff and tech work well at the jail

May 31, 2012

BROOKVILLE — During Tuesday’s Jefferson County Jail Board meeting, Judge John H. Foradora complimented the Jefferson County jail Warden Tom Elbel and the jail staff on several prosecutions that recently went to trial.

“They did a fine job with testimony, and the video system and phone system has all worked to a T to bring offenders to justice,” Foradora said. “And hopefully, that will make the jail a more secure place.”

Recent cases involved inmates smuggling drugs into the jail internally, and the jail’s video equipment was a benefit to the prosecution.
