“Opportunity Awaits” for Rooks County, Kansas
Rooks County Jail, located in Stockton, Kansas, is on track to be completed in December 2016!
The new 10,800 SF facility will house their Sheriff’s office and operations as well as a 20 bed jail divided into 4 dayrooms. The dayrooms will allow the Sheriff to separate the inmates into groups that minimizes conflict and problems. It will feature touch screen security electronics to minimize staff disruptions.
The design also maximizes the views into the dayrooms so fewer staff are required to manage the jail. The intake and booking will provide an additional 3 beds for holding inmates while they are being processed. A new area for dispatch, emergency operations, inmate property hold, secured evidence storage and a cooking kitchen round out the major design elements, which are housed under a sloped metal roof that protects the heating and cooling units for the building.
Congratulations to Rooks County, Kansas, the City of Stockton, Kansas, Rooks County Sheriff Gary Knight, and all key personnel on your new facility. We hope you are as pleased with it as we are so far!
