Beckham Co. Jail Seeing Interior Improvements

November 29, 2022

By News Director Jared Atha

Improvements are being made at the Beckham County Jail.

Sheriff Derek Manning says the 18-year-old facility’s fire alarm system will need replaced and the bidding process for that project is about to begin. Manning also says the jail’s skylights that were heavily damaged during a hail storm a couple years ago will also be replaced.

Manning said the state health department sets the light standards for every jail in Oklahoma. He added that after a recent inspection of the jail by the health department, the facility received high marks.

Manning said the inside of the jail is being repainted as well.
