I-Team: Kalamazoo County Jail expansion

I-Team: Kalamazoo County Jail expansion story image
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The Newschannel 3 I-Team's taking a close look at the expansion of the Kalamazoo County Jail because the facility is still not open, three months after an open house suggesting to the public the facility would be opening soon.

We were told in April the project would be in opening in phases.

Now months after a ribbon-cutting ceremony, the facility is mostly still closed down and there's no definitive date it will be complete.

In April the public was invited to come take a look at the new jail expansion project. There was great celebration; after all it's taken many years to get to this point. 

Now, Kalamazoo County Commissioner Phil Stinchcomb told Chief Investigative Reporter David Bailey he thinks the celebration was premature considering the jail remains largely closed.

Only laundry and kitchen facilities are being used. The I-Team also found much of the staff hasn't been hired for the new facility.

We address these issues in our latest I-Team Investigation.  Click on the video for more.
