What's news this week in Crittenden County...

At least one neighbor of Crittenden County Detention Center wants to see its new restricted custody center shut down. On Monday, the City of Marion was asked to force that closure, though that’s not likely to happen. Mike Harris and Rosanne Chandler turned to the council at its monthly meeting for help with complaints related to the newly-opened annex built to house low-risk work-release inmates.
