Gibson Co. Jail Privatizes Commissary System

The Gibson County Jail has changed from a self-operated commissary to a privatized commissary system using a private company.

Tiger Correctional Services of Jonesboro, Arkansas is providing the system that allows inmates to buy snack food, personal hygiene items and clothing with funds that friends and families place into an account.

Jail officials say the inmates like the new system since it gives them a broader selection.
