Police jurors sign off on Allen jail project

OBERLIN, LA (KPLC) -

It was a big night in the long saga over a new Allen Parish Jail.

On Monday night, Sheriff Doug Hebert met with members of the Allen Parish Police Jury about the planned jail.

Some issues involved how much money the Police Jury would spend to help fund the operation of the new jail.

After much discussion and questions from the panel, the Police Jury decided to go ahead with the project.

"Some time ago, I decided that the Sheriff's Office would build the jail instead of the Police Jury because I believe we can fast track it. So, the Sheriff's Office is building the Police Jury's jail is the best way to look at it. We won't make any money off of it or profit, whatever they pay will be exactly what those costs are," Hebert said.

Hebert said once the District Attorney gets the proper paperwork in order, the project will be brought back to the Police Jury for final approval.
