  • On OK County jail: ?We don?t want business as usual?

    By William Crum Staff This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it

    One size fits all no longer fits.

    If there's a message being sent by a study committee regarding the need for a new Oklahoma County jail, that is it.

    ?Tossing the mentally ill in jail because there's nowhere else to send them no longer fits.

    ?Locking low-level offenders up rather than sentencing them to community service no longer fits.

    ?A drug court that lacks sufficient capacity for treatment and oversight no longer fits. 

    ?Living under the threat of federal intervention to set things straight no longer fits.

    "We don't want business as usual," Stacey Trumbo, the county engineer and chairman of a committee that studied jail needs told Oklahoma County commissioners this week.

    The committee recommended asking voters to raise taxes to build a new 2,800-inmate jail, remodel the juvenile justice center and provide ongoing funding to keep the facilities running.

    Equally important were reforms to reduce the need for jail cells and enhance prospects for people in trouble to change their behavior through drug and alcohol treatment, mental health treatment, steady work and stable housing.

    The question is whether voters will see value in the proposals and agree to foot the bill.

    Gauging voters? attitudes

    Commissioners took the first step toward getting the answer by asking the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber, the city?s leading business organization, to gauge where voters stand.

    Business leaders know the significance of the issue, said Roy Williams, a member of the study committee and president and chief executive officer of The Chamber.

    Williams said a group of leaders, probably a subgroup of his executive committee, would take a wide-ranging look at ways to raise the estimated $365 million for construction and $80 million per year for operations.

    Hard questions will be asked:

    ?Will voters consider a temporary tax increase to get a new jail built?
