Forrest County Work Center Reopens

A Forrest County jail facilty that was closed after being damaged by Hurricane Katrina has reopened. 

The Forrest County Work Center on Brady Road began taking in inmates accused of misdemeanor crimes on Friday evening. 

And as of this afternoon, nearly two dozen people were being held at the facility. 

The Work Center, which had a capacity of about 160, was severly damaged during Katrina. 

Forrest County jail officials say now only about half that number of inmates can be held there. 

Those officials say only one building at the facility is being used while work on the other buildings is being completed.
