GGA’s first project in New Mexico continues to progress as planned with the exterior nearly complete. The walls on the pre-engineered building are up and have the masonry veneer in place. Socorro County’s 96-bed detention facility utilized this pre-engineered building because of tight budget and staffing constraints. The steel cells began being put in place in June and have now all been fitted and secured in place. Central Control is now underway along with many other parts of the interior.

Officials allowed citizens to get a first-hand glimpse of GGA’s newly constructed, 600-bed Muskegon County, MI Detention Center this month. The public was allowed to take a tour of the facility and see what the new, state-of-the-art facility was like in-person.

MUSKEGON, MI –  Muskegon County citizens came out in droves on Aug. 22, a beautiful sunny Saturday, to visit a place no one wants to end up, but so many are curious to see: The newly constructed Muskegon County Jail.

The new facility, which is just under 100,000 square feet, is considered a real feather in the cap of Muskegon County Sheriff Dean Roesler.

Roesler, along with past county officials — including former sheriffs, George Jurkas and Bob Carter – fought for years to see a bigger, better facility be built in Muskegon due to a consistent inmate overcrowding problem.

The past years that county officials have spent planning and configuring the new facility have taken its toll, Roesler said, but the end result was worth all the “sleepless nights.”

“We are certainly happy with the outcome of the new jail,” Roesler said, adding that it was nice to see so many citizens come out for the public open house that ran from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.

“It’s been a great turnout so far. It’s been steady all morning. It’s good to see the interest and we’ve had a lot of good questions,” he said.
