The public got their first look at Portageville's new city jail Sunday. The 8,000 square foot facility at 201 E. Main St., includes offices for Portageville Police Chief Ronnie Adams and his staff, offices for the Probation and Parole, the office of Economic Development and the Portageville Clerk. The police chief also pointed out there is a booking room, interrogation room, computer room, kitchen, conference room, bathrooms and all new dispatching facilities for his department and 9-1-1 along with an outside entrance where officers can bring prisoners directly to and from the holding cell.
