Background Discussion

On September 25, 2012, the Board of County Commissioners approved an Agreement with Armor Correctional Health Services, Inc., for necessary and proper medical, psychiatric, dental, and other health care services for persons in the care, custody, and control under the County's correctional system.   

On March 11, 2014, the Board of County Commissioners approved the First Amendment which increased the Agreement amount by $558,817.39  This increase was due to the removal and transfer of inmates from affected pods to the annex facility as energy conservation measures were implemented in the correctional facility.  Inmates in the annex facility would require the same provision of medical coverage as in the central jail.  Services would be around the clock performing triage and dispensing medication to the inmates. 

The Community Services Department seeks to extend the Agreement for an additional year concurrent with the fiscal year to continue the required medical services at the County's Correction Facility.
