From Sheriff Curtis Landers
Pretrial TAPS Open House -TAPS = Transition and Programming Services
Your Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office would like you to attend an Open House to introduce the new Pretrial TAPS Facility. We are happy to report that we obtained use of this residential duplex and programming area. With funding assistance from our local Community Justice and general fund approval from our Board of Commissioners, as well as support from Health and Human Services and all departments of the county, this duplex was remodeled and furnished to accommodate up to nine individuals.
Housing is a very important component to our Pretrial Justice Program. We know that individuals who have adequate housing are more likely to show up for future court dates and not re-offend. These individuals have a better chance of a successful transition out of jail. This project would not have been possible without the excellent partnerships from all involved and is another example of working together to successfully address a community issue.
Monday February 25th at 35 NW Cottage Street in Newport
Noon to 3pm Remarks and program begin at 12:30. Refreshments will be served
