Lincoln Detention Center Budget Adopted

A $3 1/2 million 2015 budget for the Lincoln Parish Detention Center was adopted at Friday’s meeting of the Detention Center Commission, which is considerably more than it cost to operate the center when it was operated by LaSalle Corrections. Their last budget was about $2.2 million for the calendar year 2012. The Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office (LPSO) took over operation of the jail at mid-year of 2013.

See here the document.

Also adopted was the amended 2014 budget.

Warden Jim Tuten reported on the ongoing projects at the jail.

Said, Tuten, “From what I understand, the fence, camera, light project will be finished by the end of this year.”

Tuten also noted that increased sales tax receipts should add to the jail’s revenues.

    One consideration to keep in mind: the budgets for 2014 and 2015 include one-time capital expenditures which LaSalle were neglecting to make. A better comparison would exclude these items.
