HINDS COUNTY, Miss. - After being destroyed in a riot almost two years ago, a section of the Hinds County Detention Center in Raymond is now ready for inmates.

Work was complete in October, but the area had not reopened for inmates. Hinds County had to make provisions to have people who were arrested housed at other facilities while the work was being done.

The media was given a chance to go inside to see what Pod C looks like now. From the commodes, to the common area to the phone bank, everything has been replaced or renovated. Fresh paint covers the walls. There also added new monitors to insure guard and inmate safety, more cameras and a video visitation center. 

In March of this year, Pod A was damaged during another riot. An inmate was killed during that disturbance.
