The existing Whatcom County Jail was built in 1983 and ran over the permitted “Average Daily Population,” in 1989. It’s been an issue in Whatcom County for twenty-eight years and we are no closer to fixing the problem now, than we were then. Why? Learn about the history and time-line of this issue, the need to fix-it or build a new county jail, and who-what-and why it is taking so long to do the right thing. Or, is it “If We Build It – They Will Come,” as some local, legal council would have us believe?
To Build-It – Or Not to Build-It….That is the Question? No Matter Which Way You Slice It…Everyone Agrees that the Whatcom County Jail is Unfit for Humans. So, Why Haven’t We Built-It?
