New Herkimer County Jail to Soon be Enclosed


Cell Installation '95%' Complete

HERKIMER–Herkimer County’s new $38 million jail will soon be enclosed–allowing security system installation to kick into high-gear.

The number of workers on-site will increase to over 80 in the coming weeks.

Project officials target June of 2020 for the jail’s completion, and around three months of inmate transition thereafter; pending approval from State Corrections.
