The Davidson County Sheriff’s office on Friday transferred 300 inmates from the downtown Nashville criminal justice center to a facility on Harding Place. After 34 years of processing and housing criminals, the jail now sits empty, but workers will soon begin demolishing it with the goal of replacing it within three to four years. The new jail will provide needed features, including a separate place to house the mentally ill, who long have been housed with criminals. Fox 17 has the story.
