State Sen. John Albers

State Senator John Albers (R-Roswell) continues to plead with Atlanta city officials to turn the City Detention Center over to Fulton County. Albers, chair of the Senate Committee on Public Safety initially made his plea to the city officials last month following the committee’s second hearing. On the eve of today’s meeting, Albers made the request again.

“I would also like to, once again, urge the City of Atlanta to turn over ownership of the Atlanta City Detention Center to Fulton County,” said Albers. “This is not a political issue, but one of safety for residents of Atlanta. The residents of Fulton County should not pay $400 million plus dollars for a new jail while one exists currently.”
