The Scott County Jail is beefing up security for the safety of the public.

According to Captain Humphrey with the Scott County Jail, crews have installed nearly fifty cameras throughout the facility and several more are to come.

Humphrey said several years ago, an incident occurred where inmates tried to smuggle weapons into the building. Officials at the jail said this served as a wakeup call, prompting them to step up the security and make sure this would not happen again.

Humphrey said the security cameras have been two years in the making and cost tax payers around $80,000.
