Jail Steering Committee seeking members

Beltrami County, according to a release, is seeking citizens interested in serving on the Jail Steering Committee.

Committee members will be expected to attend a three-day training at the end of April, attend monthly meetings and be fully engaged in the process of research, discovery and problem solving.

The county’s goal is to have the right sized jail, designed to keep staff and inmates safe and secure, with programming designed to reduce repeat offending.

Letters of interest can be sent to Kay Mack, either by post or email, by March 31.

Letters should include information about what the applicant can bring to the conversations.
