Sheriff seeks upgraded locks at a Guilford Co. jail
HIGH POINT, N.C. — An effort to make the county jail in High Point safer comes with a price tag.
Guilford County Sheriff BJ Barnes will be asking for more than $150, 000 to upgrade locks at the jail.
At Thursday night’s meeting, the Guilford County Board of Commissioners is expected to consider the request.
According to the High Point Enterprise, the locks are around 30 years old and need to be periodically replaced.
The money to replace the locks would come from already budgeted funds.
The Commissioners meeting will be 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the old Guilford County Courthouse.
