Eau Claire's new downtown jail now that it's been open for more than a month, and officers are calling it safe and high-tech.
"This was definitely a right decision. Not only to build the jail itself due to inefficiencies that we've had, but also the location for the efficiency of all county government," said Jail Captain Joel Brittengen.
12 years and $34 million dollars later, the new jail is finally up and running. And it has all of the bells and whistles that the old location didn't have, making it better, safer and more efficient for staff, visitors, and inmates.
