WSCOTV – CATAWBA COUNTY, N.C. — Inmates in Catawba County now have access to tablets while in jail.
The sheriff’s office believes the new program will help provide educational opportunities, while also decreasing violence in the cell block.
“Inmates are taking a lot of educational courses. I’m shocked by the amount of courses they are taking. The violence, the outbursts, the whole mood of the facility has changed,” said Capt. Nathan Fisher at the Catawba County Detention Facility.
