Geneva County Jail Update


The Geneva County jail will not be accepting inmates from the cities of Opp or Florala. Today, the Geneva County Commission announced that negotiations are over. The Opp and Florala Mayors thought using the Geneva County Jail would be cheaper than using the Covington County Jail. Geneva County officials say it would put a strain on transportation and inmate care. Geneva County Sheriff Greg Ward says his inmate population is rising and he doesn’t have the space to handle out-of-county prisoners.
