Warden - Paul A. Kaminsky

The Warden's main responsibility is the safe and secure running of the jail though his staff. His mission is to continue to find ways to provide a safer community by housing offenders while offering programs and education for offenders to increase their chances of becoming productive citizens when released. These programs include an inmate social service which provides drug and alcohol counseling, religious services, and educational services. An inmate work release program is offered to provide offenders the opportunity to continue their employment and support their families while paying their debt to society.  Computers will also be installed in all control centers which will enable all officers to receive timely information. Additional cameras will be installed for  more effective monitoring of all hallways and day rooms. Upgrading outdated technology will increase the safety of both staff and inmates while protecting society from committed offenders.
