Bi-State Jail Pod
Bowie County will take control of its correctional system in February from LaSalle Corrections, the private company running the jails. The county now needs to hire 174 jailers to man the facilities. Some slots will go to La Salle employees who reapplied, but there will also be many new hires at the correctional lock-up and the Bi-State Jail. Starting pay is $14 an hour.
