Some are calling it the most modern prison facility in the country. The news media was given a tour of the New Walton County Jail Thursday.
The 22-million dollar, 580 bed jail has the latest electronic security features available on the market.
The Walton County justice facility is expected to be a model for future prison construction.
It will replace an outdated jail.
This Saturday, the public is invited to an open house at the new jail. It’s located off highway 83, about 6-miles north of DeFuniak Springs.
