FULTON COUNTY, Ga. - The Fulton County Jail has plans to replace the worn out locks on its cell doors.
An independent consultant last week confirmed the locks are worn out and obsolete.
“We already knew the locks need to be changed, the issue was that the locks could be manipulated,” Col. Reginald Turner of the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office said.
Jail officials still have to finalize the plans, but the county manager is committed to getting new locks by the end of the year.
