During an otherwise routine weekly meeting of the Comanche County commissioners Monday morning, William Hobbs, administrator of the Comanche County Detention Center, told commissioners a proposal to move some inmates to stateand private facilities would cost the jail money.
During his weekly report to the commissioners, Hobbs was asked about how a proposal by Corrections officer Robert Patton, director of the Oklahoma Department of Corrections to move some inmates at overcrowded county jails across the state who have traditionally been held at county facilities would affect the Comanche County jail.
Hobbs said the proposal would most likely cost the jail about $500,000 annually. County jails receive $27 per inmate a day from the state Department of Corrections.
“It’s a significant chunk of revenue,” said Hobbs.
