VOLUME 27, NO. 202 WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2012

Commissioners: Liberty County Commissioners heard a report yesterday from Lynn Greenwood, a professor of Criminology at Texas A & M in Killeen on a budget comparison study she was contracted to do earlier this year. The study was comparing the cost of continuing to contract the jail operations out to a private company and returning operations to the Liberty County Sheriff. In her study, M-rs. Greenwood said the cost per-prisoner per-day for Liberty County should be about $43.70.  However, currently the county is paying $72 per-prisoner per-day. 253rdDistrict Judge Chap Cain urged commissioners to return the operations to the sheriff, and promised if they did, through various programs such as the bond release program the county would save money in the long run.

Phone Scam: The Liberty Police Department is warning citizens of a scam using a phone, and the Liberty PD phone number. A new phone app for smart phones allows the user to program in what ever number they want to show up on the victim’s caller ID. According to police, in this new scam someone calls, posing as a police officer, with the caller ID showing the main police line, trying to get personal information, such as drivers license, social security number and more. If you receive one of these calls, report it to police, it is a scam.
