SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — A new wing at Sioux City's Residential Treatment Facility is now poised to begin taking in inmates.
The Sioux City Journal reports (http://bit.ly/17Nc35Z) that once 11 residential officers are hired and trained, the 42 beds of the Linn A. Hall Center will begin to fill, bringing the facility's capacity to 99 inmates.
Steve Scholl, director of corrections for the center's district in northwest Iowa, says he hopes to have them hired by early October.
The addition sat empty last year because the state budget didn't include funding 14 staff positions. In May, the Iowa Legislature approved $867,000 to hire staff.
Scholl says he has already hired a facility manager and two probation/parole officers. Other officers will provide 24-hour supervision of offenders on parole, work release or serving probation.
