The East Baton Rouge Parish Metro Council wants to keep the city jail in downtown Baton Rouge open longer.

The current capacity is at 150 prisoners, and 48 hours is the maximum amount of time people can be held. It could be converted for long term use, according to the city constable.

News 2’s Mike Steele got answers on how much that would cost.
