Construction on the new jail is complete and all the inmates have been moved over from the old jail to the new. On Monday the renovations in the old jail will begin. But before that, there was time for the SWAT team to get in and make use of the empty space.

“We don’t always know what we are capable of doing, we only know from what we’re taught and in different environments. But when you’re actually using them in the environment that you will have to go into, then it’s a rare opportunity to have a type of training like this,” says SWAT Commander, Lt. Rodney Stearns.
