When is the juvenile detention center supposed to open for Douglas County? When are the corrections officers going to be hired?
"The juvenile detention center should open in early March," said Pam Weigand, director of the Northeast Kansas Regional Juvenile Detention Center, which was built in North Lawrence. "We are not in the process of interviewing for corrections officers."
She said she hopes the 13 officers and three supervisors will start work the second week of February, which will allow time for training.
