New Jail On SD Reservation To Open In January

December 6, 2012, 10:29 AM

MISSION, SD -

The Rosebud Sioux Tribe is set to open a $25 million adult jail next month that will emphasize cultural wellness for inmates.

The grand opening for the 67,500-square-foot Rosebud Sioux Tribe Adult Correctional Facility is set for Jan. 17 near Mission.

Administrator Melissa Eagle Bear says the facility will house 160 male and female inmates and replace a smaller facility that does not meet safety standards.

The jail will house tribal members charged with crimes in tribal court as well as people arrested for federal crimes waiting to be picked up by federal officials.

Eagle Bear says the new facility will include a courtroom for arraignments, classroom space and space for traditional ceremonies.

Federal stimulus money funded the facility.

This article has been revised to reflect the following correction:
In a previous version of this story, the AP incorrectly said the jail administrator's first name was Michelle. It's been correct to Melissa.
