The Grant Parish Sheriff's Office says video arraignment technology will be used for defendants at the parish jail.

Sheriff Baxter Welch says the system, supplemented by federal grant dollars, will be used for
arraignment and bond hearings and will have an immediate positive impact on the judicial system.

The new technology will reduce costs and streamline operations by allowing the jail staff to be freed from the daily responsibility of prepping and transporting inmates for court hearings.
