OLYMPIA, Wash. —
The Nisqually Tribe is dedicating a $20 million public safety complex Friday at Olympia that includes a 288-inmate jail.
It was built with a grant from the Justice Department and a loan from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The jail could be expanded to hold 576 inmates. Several jurisdictions will send misdemeanor offenders to the tribal jail, including Lacey.
The Olympian reports (http://bit.ly/1gRWvEH ) some county residents objected to the tribal jail while a new $45 million Thurston County jail sits empty because of funding issues.
