APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - Starting Tuesday, some changes are being made to the Outagamie County Jail.
Officials say an area used to house juveniles will now be used as a unit for adult inmates with special medical or mental health-related issues.
On December 31, the 29-bed space became available after the county closed its juvenile detention operation. The county said the average number of juvenile housed in the facility had dropped to fewer than 2 per day.
Other counties will take over housing those juveniles as needed.
