The Mesa County Commissioners went to jail, but only for a visit

Commissioners completed an annual inspection of the Mesa County Jail Monday (Oct. 23), touring the facility with Capt. Art Smith and other county officials.

The tour included the pods in the jail, the security used to transport inmates to court and the booking area.

Here are some pictures from the tour:
