Jail Commander James Martin and Major Tanesha Crear ordered a special lunch of cheeseburgers and chips in early 2016, and sat down with the juveniles to listen to what they have to say, and to also inform them of some upcoming programs based on good behavior. This photo of Major Tanesha Crear laughing with these young inmates really captures the heart of our Sheriff's Deputies in the Jail Division.
