Law Center Complete And Ready For Review
The new Bremer-Waverly Law Enforcement Center is a $5.2 million project for the area to improve administrative and detention facilities, expanding inmate capacity to 79 total prisoners.
The center serves both Bremer County and the city of Waverly in Iowa, and has eased administrative tasks and record-keeping for officers compared to the rumble-tumble jumble of stacked boxes and packed closets in the old jail.
The new center has three outdoor surveillance cameras, while the old jail had none, and separate sets of entrances and exits for inmates, staff, and the public.
The center is also equipped with spacious interviewing rooms that possess recording and video technology.
The project, begun in October 2003, will be completed this year and was funded by a 1 percent local sales tax approved by voters.
