Reno County Spending Money to Keep Jail Smelling Good

KSAL StaffMarch 26, 2015

Reno County is buying equipment that will vacuum-seal clothing used by inmates to keep the county’s new jail smelling good.

County commissioners on Tuesday approved spending more than $10,000 to buy the CPI Guardian Inmate Clothing Storage System.

Sheriff Randy Henderson says the machine will seal clothing people are wearing when they arrive at the jail before they are issued jail clothing. He says the vacuum also will kill bacteria on the clothes.

The Hutchinson News reports the idea for the vacuum-sealing came after a committee studying a possible Reno County jail visited the Ford County jail and noticed the lack of odor.
