Construction of the new Starke County Sheriff’s Office and Detention Center remains on schedule and under budget. Contractors are presently working on the plumbing, electrical and mechanical connections at the site east of Knox on State Road 8.
The project completion date is April 30. Before inmates are moved into the facility, county officials plan to have a public dedication and open house. They have not set a date for that event yet, nor has a timeline been established to move inmates from the existing jail across from the Starke County Courthouse into the new facility.
