I am curious as to where the money from the jail-bed-contract is? The Commonwealth of Virginia pays for inmates on work release, the inmate pay to be on work release, BUT....I cannot find any record of the money, in audit reports or otherwise. That should pay for the new jail. The costs of inmates at thee jail. The officials of Middlesex are also aware this is an issue.

Is it right to allow this to go unchecked, hidden funds, from audit? It could be millions of dollars, and if it is in account, where is the interest?

Maybe Guy Abbott has the money in his account. Remember when he used the County credit card for his own personal needs!

I think an alternative to jails must be found. It seems jail is not a deterrent enough for criminals, with overcrowded jails and new jails being built all the time to house them.
In my opinion a good alternative to jails is harsh whippings and canings, like is practiced in several asian and african countries. This should preferably be done bare and in public or in front of seated witnesses of both sexes which would be a good deterrant for criminals especially young ones.
inclined to investigate

Maybe David Harmon or Finney have it in a secret account for retirement, promising to give it to the County Aministrator "when they retire". Like .."the check is in the mail" theory. Hmmmm...

An alternative to jail?
Is the Jail Board, for the Middle Peninsula Regional Security Center,
Not showing the audit for contract beds from Virginia Department of Correction funding?
It should be asked of them..
to Not mislead,
NOT put tainted water in the Court House,
Follow the bid process correctly,
Not allow it staff to have sex with inmates
But who cares to investigate I ask? If the above is true?

Humph! That is interesting, BECAUSE, the jail gets $600,000 (from Mathews, Middlesex, King William, King and Queen and Essex counties) a YEAR..! That makes for and annual incomes of the jail $3,000,000 a year...!!!!!!

So, for 10, yes (10) years, that @30,000,000 dollars, wow! Plus, the work-release program collected an estimated (conservative number) of ten millions dollars from inmate(s).

NOW, 40 million dollars $40,000,000! And this year, about a week ago, they the Middle Peninsula Regional Security Center, asked for an additional
ONE millions dollars $1,000,000

Tax-payers, I ask you what the *&#! is going on in Middlesex?
