Glades ICE jail reported closing

An administrative officer with the Baker County Sheriff’s Office says there’s no cause for alarm at a report that the Glades County jail that served as a model for the struggling Baker County facility is closing for lack of ICE inmates.
The facility will reportedly close in the next few months, according to a story in the Glades County Democrat published April 10.
Two days before, reporter Charles M. Murphy wrote, Glades County Sheriff Stuart Whiddon made the announcement at a meeting of the Glades County Commission, citing a loss of inmates from the federal agency Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, that cost the jail $1 million during a two month period.
“We had a meeting with ICE in Miami last Friday and had a heart-to-heart with them and they told us it probably won’t get much better,” the sheriff was quoted as saying.
He explained the Glades County jail needs at least 400 inmates to stay afloat, but it has averaged about 200 in recent months.
Officials in Baker County, where federal inmates including ICE are housed, have said they need about 400 inmates in all, including local prisoners and those from other federal agencies, to remain financially viable. Read More »
