Washington County Hires Ombudsman to Help with Jail Overcrowding

Washington County has hired an ombudsman for a pilot project as part of an effort to find alternative ways to remedy the overcrowding at the detention center aside from a proposed $38 million expansion. The man contracted for the job is not new to it. Stan Adelman was ombudsman in 2000 when the jail expanded from its old location to its current one.
