B1-B2 By Cindy Sheets Contributing Writer A new agreement between Perkins Police Department and the Payne County Jail went into effect this week. Perkins Police Chief Bob Ernst said the agreement was approved last month by both Perkins City Com- mission and Payne County Commission, and it offi- cially went into effect on Monday, June 11. "Basically, the agree- ment is that Payne County Jail will house all of our municipal and district court prisoners," Ernst said. Perkins' last jail agree- ment was with the Iowa Tribe Police Department, but a fire at the tribe's emergency services build- ing left the department without a location to take its prisoners, Ernst said. The new agreement is also a bit different than the prior jail plan because it will allow prisoners to be held longer. "Before, due to limited cell space, our prisoners could be held for only 72 hours at the Iowa Tribe jail before they'd be released," Ernst said. "That's not how it is now. Prisoners will now stay in jail until they're bonded out or take care of it through the court system." Ernst said he is pleased to have the new agreement in place and hopes those t III mill who have open warrants will take steps to get their matters cleared up with the court. "We will start actively pursuing those people who have outstanding warrants and get them taken care of," Ernst said. "We are going to begin serving city warrants and transporting people to the Payne County Jail. "It seems as if there has been a 'feeling' or a 'notion' that people do not have to pay Perkins fines or comply with the court because we have not had a jail agreement, and the threat or possibility of being incarcerated was not there. Now, there is a jail agreement." Ernst also reports the police department is now being dispatched out of the Payne County Sheriff's Office. "Sheriff Hauf and his staff have been so good to work with in getting these agree- ments put into place," the chief said. Ernst also commended the Iowa Tribe Police Depart- ment for their assistance, and reports his office con- tinues to work closely with the ITPD.
