Grant County Moving Juvenile Detention To Martin Hall

Plans to move Grant County’s juvenile detention to Martin Hall in Medical Lake are moving ahead. The move was approved at Tuesday’s Grant County Commissioners meeting and will take effect on Jan. 1. Layoff notices are expected to be sent next week to the Grant County detention center employees. In October nearly 20 people addressed the commission expressing concerns about the move because of things like changes and restrictions in services and creating a disconnect between juvenile offenders and their community.
