Commissioners on the Jail Oversight Committee have discussed the possibility of replacing the TVs in the prisoners’ area with larger, flat-screen TVs.TVs were recently placed in the men’s and women’s pods and are used as an incentive for good behavior from the jail inmates.“Those TVs that we got donated didn’t cost us anything. It only cost us for the service that we signed up with Ben Lomand,” said County Executive John Pelham. “I was always under the impression, if you all have been back there and saw the TVs just sitting out on the tables in the exercise room, that the guys were just out in the exercise room, sitting on the picnic tables and gathered around the TV and watching it.
