Indicators point to more efficiency in our criminal justice system

It’s a rare day when the sheriff of Bibb County, or any county, is the bearer of good news. Too often, law enforcement, by its very nature, delivers a lot of bad news to a lot of people every day. That’s natural when the very nature of the job is to lock people up. About the only good news we can regularly expect from the department is that more bad news is being delivered to those who warrant it. But it is genuinely good and unexpected news that our Law Enforcement Center, that can legally house up to 966 inmates, has been on a diet of late and that the inmate population has dropped to its lowest level in five years.
