Tony Estrada, SCC Sheriff, says construction continues on the new 45-million dollar SCC jail on the east side of the County Complex.  He says it is anticipated it will be in use by the end of the year. He says it will have 300 beds.  He says population is currently down at the present detention center, but SCC is contracting with the U.S. Marshalls Service to house 170 federal prisoners.  Estrada says the reimbursement cost will exceed actual costs so the County will make money on the arrangement.
