The Summerville News is reporting today that Sheriff John Everett has received new jail inmate uniforms for those incarcerated at the Chattooga County Jail. The cost of the uniforms was $5,000, paid for by profits from the jail commissary store. The uniforms are one piece striped jump suites and will replace the two piece orange inmate uniforms.
In other changes at the Sheriffs Department the Sheriff will now allow full time deputies to drive their patrol cars home. According to the report, the Sheriff said he will "deal with" deputies that misuse the drive-home policy.
