Task Force for Troubled Jail

CLOVIS, NM - A new task force is being launched to solve problems with Curry County's jail where 14 inmates have escaped in five years.

Some community leaders say this comes out of desperation after a recent plan to fix the situation was shot down by voters. When voters said no to the proposed $33 million judicial complex, most community leaders say they were stunned and left without ideas of how to fix the current outdated buildings

Now they're reaching out to the people for help by starting a new citizens task force. They want to hear your ideas. If you're interested, the best thing to do is call city hall for the details.
