Contract To House County’s Female InmatesThe Potter County Commissioners have approved a contract with Elk County to hold female jail inmates, at a cost of $55 per day. Potter is also responsible for medical expenses and transportation.
There are no accommodations for female prisoners at the Potter County Jail. The number of women requiring incarceration has risen dramatically in recent years, the commissioners noted. Potter also has an arrangement with jails in Clinton, Tioga and Jefferson counties to house female inmates.
