Maybe bluefield could get money from all the other police departments that use the jail to help with the costs. If regional jail can bill then why shouldnt bluefield bill. That is if enough people or police departments want to keep it. That is a lot of driving to regionaland has to cost alot.

Since ALL police have to use it the COUNTY should provide a "holding jail" or whatever not dump their responsibility wholly on Bluefield.

Wouldn't your time be better spent filling out an application, instead of wasting the whole day on here responding to every single topic??? Just a thought.

Maybe Bluefield should consider outsourcing their convicted criminals to Afghanistan
