Inmates in Decatur County transferred to new facility

Greensburg, IN—Monday afternoon, citizens in Greensburg were caught off guard by the parade of 28 police vehicles from all over the state traveling thru the city with lights flashing.  Traveling in the center of the caravan was a Marion County Sheriff transport vehicle.  

The Decatur County Sheriff’s Office reports it successfully transferred all inmates from the old Decatur County Jail to our new Sheriff’s Office and Detention Center located at 601 S. Ireland Street in Greensburg. Officials say this was a large scale, joint operation assisted by the Marion County Sheriff’s Office. There was no word if inmates from other facilities were brought in during the transfer.
