Long-Awaited Bourbon County Law Enforcement Center Opens Its Doors
FORT SCOTT, Kan. — The long-awaited Bourbon County Law Enforcement Center in Fort Scott finally opened its doors in November 2017.
Construction on the 21,125-square-foot facility in Bourbon County began in November 2016.

The project had a budget of $9 million and has 74 beds for inmates.
