San Andreas, CA — There will be a dedication ceremony for the new Calaveras County Jail and Sheriff’s Office administration building.
The roughly $59 million jail project was funded by state AB 900 grant money and local Measure J bonds. The administration portion of the building is already operational, and inmates will start moving into the jail section sometime in May. The jail has 160 beds, but only 80 will be available initially. More beds will open up in the future as staffing becomes available.
The dedication ceremony is scheduled for 10am this Friday at the facility located at 1045 Jeff Tuttle Drive in San Andreas. The event will be hosted by Calaveras County Sheriff Gary Kuntz.
