On Monday November 15th, the 2nd grade cub scouts of Pack 55 visited our local San Saba County Jail. Sheriff Allen Brown hosted the boys and their
parents/guardians and shared historic facts about the jail, including that our jail was built in 1884 and is currently the oldest operating jail facility in the entire nation. He shared details regarding the renovations performed and the change in the outlay of the facility since his taking over as Sheriff.
Additionally we toured the facility’s first floor jail cell,
the holding cell for intoxicated prisoners and those under the influence of drugs, the control center/dispatcher office, and the Sheriff’s patrol car. Sheriff Brown concluded the tour with an electrifying demonstration of how
and when officers use tasers to subdue individuals in situations where theybecome a necessity.
I want to thank Sheriff Brown for his movement of inmates to the 2nd floor and other procedures necessary in preparation for hosting the following Cub Scouts: Landon Short, Johnny Meador, TJ Grant, Risien Shahan, Christian Van Bibber, Polo Davila, and Justin Beck. I appreciate his taking time to educate the cub scouts about the San Saba County Jail and other related operations.
