Saline County to send juveniles to Junction City

SALINA, Kan. (AP) — Saline County commissioners have approved a plan to house the county’s juvenile inmates at a regional detention center in Junction City.

The commissioner signed an agreement Tuesday to send juvenile inmates to the North Central Kansas Regional Juvenile Detention Facility. The county will pay a $10,000 membership fee and nearly $405,000 a year to house the inmates.

Saline County Sheriff Glen Kochanowski closed the county’s juvenile center last month, saying a lack of staff and overcrowding were creating safety issues.
