St. Helena Parish Sheriff Nathaniel Williams wants a new jail and he would like to place it in the
parish industrial park.

Williams told St. Helena Parish police jurors Tuesday that the current 60-year-old parish jail in Greensburg is in need of much work.

He said a new jail would allow St. Helena Parish to house state and federal prisoners, both potential sources of income for operation of the new jail.

Williams said the parish jail currently does not house state or federal prisoners, or women.

Jurors said they would think about Williams' request.
