Sheriff Brown: Jail Consolidation With Warren County
An Operational and Fiscal Success
The jail consolidation shared service between Hunterdon and Warren Counties has saved Hunterdon County over $800,000 since 2020 and continues to be a success, both operationally and financially, Hunterdon County Sheriff Fred W. Brown reported to the County Board of Commissioners, at the February 1st Board meeting.
Sheriff Brown reported, “The County has completed our second year in the jail consolidation shared service with Warren County, and I can report that Warren County’s corrections operation, led by Warden Ken McCarthy, has been exceptionally professional in dealing with our office, and his staff have been most cooperative during the transfer of inmates.”
