Grant could help fund jail expansion

Todd Road Jail has room to grow


The Todd Road Jail in Santa Paula is surrounded by open space and agriculture.

Sheriff Geoff Dean is moving forward with a plan to apply for a grant to help pay for jail expansion plans.

Tuesday, Ventura County supervisors supported a plan to apply for the grant that would require some matching funds.

The expansions plan includes a medical unit and more than 60 beds.

Overcrowding has been a problem at jails in the wake of the state's realignment plan.

Realignment led to longer sentences served in county jails.
