FORT TOTTEN, N.D. (AP) - Police on the Spirit Lake Indian Reservation are celebrating the opening of a newly remodeled jail.
Officials say the remodeled facility is an improvement from the previous jail, which did not even have an air-conditioning system. The new facility will be able to hold up to 30 prisoners.
Acting Police Chief Marty Foote says the new jail is good for the area.
Construction is not yet complete. Fort Totten police plan to build an addition and move department offices to the same building as the jail.
The department plans to bring on three more full-time officers.
