Shelby County Jailers Lose Jobs

The Shelby County Sheriff's Department has fired two jailers for allowing three jail trustees to watch television in the processing room. The inmates gained access to keys to other parts of the jail. Reportedly the inmates were attempting to gain entrance into the holding facility where females are kept. The inmates made it as far as a safety vestibule. The jailers failed to report the incident in a timely manner. They were then fired.
