Grayson County juvenile services to double in size

Posted:

GRAYSON COUNTY -- A local juvenile detention center is about to double in size.

Tuesday morning at the county court meeting, commissioners approved a major expansion at Grayson County juvenile services.

The facility currently services 36 counties and with three more state juvenile facilities shutting down, director Bill Bristow says he expects to service even more.

"The exciting part of this is not only the idea of providing services for kids, but bringing jobs into our area, as the state drops beds, we're picking them up, on an as needed basis," Bristow said.

Construction is expected to begin in May or June.
