The Livingston County Jail is again experiencing a lack of hot water for all of our detainees. The new hot water boiler was properly installed and worked fine for a few days at which time it broke down. A factory representative looked at our system and believes the problem is due to one or more faulty parts. These parts are being shipped here and the plumber will install these at the earliest convenience. The additional costs are being paid for by the supplier due to their faulty part(s).
We have received some complaint from a few of the detainees about the hot water issue. Some of the detainees who chose to complain also noted it being warm and muggy in the cell areas as well on the excessively hot days.
We have provided the inmates with hand sanitizers, they have soap and cleaning supplies, and the cold water temperature has been around 76 degrees at the tap.
The Livingston County Health Center reports we are fine in not providing hot water to the detainees and that we heat water to use during cleaning and cooking at the jail.
We are investigating how a female detainee allegedly damaged an electrical outlet. Investigation shows the locked cover was violated and the electrical outlet damaged which shut off certain power to two cell areas. The suspect allegedly was trying to place a foreign object like a paper clip in attempt to light an object. The electrician was here and repaired the damage. Investigation continues for consideration of charges for damage to county property.
We have one detainee on maximum security watch. The individual refused to stop beating on the walls and the cell door and would not be reasonable with the officer’s requests so that the detainee did not harm himself. The individual was then handcuffed and two employees went to place the man in the restraint chair at which time he escalated his violent and resisting behavior and was subsequently placed in the restraint chair per office policy.
We have had 3 additional persons arrested this week from the Most Wanted list on our web site with at least one being found due to tip(s) coming in from the website which permitted authorities in another county to locate that fugitive. Arrested were:
Brian Keith King, 47, Conway, MO on a Livingston County warrant for alleged Probation Violation on felony conviction of passing a bad check or no account check over $500. Mr. King was arrested by Laclede County authorities on July 12, 2012.
