Sheriff's report projects jail income of $1 million or more

MOUND CITY – On Monday, Sept. 11, Sheriff Kevin Friend reported on projected incomes for the jail and gave his weekly department report to the commissioners.

Friend told commissioners that after invoicing for August 2023, the total through August from the jail will be $684,891.

Commission Chair Danny McCullough asked the sheriff what the 2023 budget showed for income.

Friend said that the estimate had been about $500,000. But since they had already surpassed that at this point and would probably bring in $75,000 to $85,000 per month for the rest of 2023, he was projecting that as long as things stayed the same, the income from the jail for 2023 would be just shy of $1 million, about $980,000.

He said that if the staffing goals were reached in January, February and March of 2024, the jail will probably bring in $1.1 to $1.5 million in 2024.

The sheriff’s department numbers for the past week are:

• Total prisoners at the Justice Center the past week were 58. Ten prisoners were released the past week.

• No prisoners were sent to other facilities.

• Forty-one prisoners were from other facilities.

• Total 911 calls were 99.
