Staff recommends terminating relationship with Justice Concepts Inc.

Sedgwick County public safety director Bob Lamkey has recommended that the county terminate its relationship with jail consultant Justice Concepts Inc., saying it has deteriorated.

Justice Concepts contracted with the county in August 2008 to reduce the jail’s population by 25 percent. It failed to meet that goal, and its $124,616 contract expired last June. Justice Concepts had asked the county to allow it until May 31 to finish its original work.

Commissioners will vote shortly. Stay tuned to
