Davidson County Sheriff Considers Moving Jails

Davidson County Sheriff Daron Hall says a big move could save taxpayers big money, and according to WSMV News Channel 4, he is considering a plan to move the city's two jails from downtown Nashville to a less expensive location, possibly in the Antioch or Harding Place area. The Hill Detention Center, which holds about 500 inmates, is located on Second Ave. North beneath the sheriff's administrative offices. The Criminal Justice Center, which holds another 800 inmates, is located across the street from the criminal courts building. Hall is asking county commissioners for $5 million to study the idea.
