A new $39,600 security camera system has been approved to replace the county's current security system, which is failing, according to Capt. Jeff Smith, who oversees the Clear Creek County jail.
The current security camera system does not store more than one week of footage, said Sheriff Rick Albers. Video quality is poor, Albers said.
Jail life can be "interesting," "scary" and "disgusting," Smith said. The newly approved camera system has additional features to help jail personnel control the images, he said.
