The jail is marked Detention Center, the administration office is marked Law Enforcement Center.

Potter County Sheriff Brian Thomas says it's an exciting day that's been long anticipated.

"Well this has been about a year and a half now, so we're excited," said Thomas. "I've been out there for about a week. So it's kinda nice to start getting everyone else out there, and getting them moved in, and those kinda things."

Thomas adds the facility will help the office better function as a whole.

"It's gonna make us more efficient because we're all in one building. We're across the parking lot from the jail so that's gonna be really nice. We're gonna have all our employees in one spot so that's what's really gonna benefit us all," said Thomas.

This morning, the Potter County Commissioner's Court voted to allow bidding to demolish the old complex.
