Cleveland County to demolish former jail building

NORMAN — Cleveland County commissioners say the former county detention center will be demolished this fall.

The building opened in 1984 but was closed two years ago after a new detention center was built. Since then, the building had been used as a temporary holding facility for inmates who were transported to the courthouse for hearings.

On Monday, county commissioners approved the purchase of a modular building that will be put in the county’s parking lot to hold the inmates waiting to go to court.

A local newspaper reports that the former jail site will likely be used for parking while a facilities study is completed. The county’s new $26 million jail opened in January 2012.
