DESOTO COUNTY, MS -
(WMC-TV) – It is move in day at the DeSoto County Jail.
The female inmates at the new multi-million dollar facility getting used to their new surroundings and technology.
Fifty-five women were taken to their new dormitory style quarters Monday afternoon.
More than 125 cameras are the eyes and ears of the jail.
Jail administrator Chad Wicker says pods are much cheaper than individual cells.
So far, he has heard mixed reaction from the inmates.
"The inmates will always have something negative to say, and some of the designs they don't like, but it's not for them, it's for security and that's why things are built the way they are, not for comfort," said Wicker.
The DeSoto County Jail is the first in Mississippi to use video visitation. Visitors will be able to go to the old jail in Hernando and video chat with inmates at the new jail right from their pods.
The male inmates in DeSoto County are expected to move into the new jail a couple of weeks for the beginning of 2013.
Once inside, males and female inmates will be housed separately.
