Escambia County takes control of the jail from Sheriff Morgan
ESCAMBIA COUNTY -- Also at midnight, Escambia County leaders took control of the jail from Sheriff David Morgan.
The facility, its employees and its 31-million dollar budget will fall under the direct oversight of the Escambia County Commission.
The switch won't mean much of a change for most.
But uniforms and badges will be different-- and the vehicle logos will change.
Otherwise, it should be business as usual at the jail today.
The transition will cost the county close to a million dollars according to the county's Budget and Finance Chief.
