|Inmate Population Tops Prison Board Meeting|
CLEARFIELD – The number of inmates housed at the Clearfield County Jail continues to be a concern discussed at the Clearfield County Prison Board meetings.
During yesterday’s regular meeting, the board learned that December started with 149 inmates with 119 committed, 116 released and an average daily population of 152.
December ended with 153 inmates housed. Warden Gregory Collins reported that as of this week, there are 159 inmates at CCJ with 13 housed in Jefferson County and five in other locations, bringing the total incarcerated for Clearfield County to 177.
There were 19 inmates placed on home detention during December, as well. Later in the meeting, President Judge Fredric Ammerman, who is board chairman, noted that it has helped to make home detention compulsory if an inmate is eligible.
