CLOVIS, N.M. – Renovations are underway for the Curry County Detention Center and new security measures are in motion.


The Curry County Commission held a board meeting Tuesday to discuss the new renovations at the detention center. Lance Pyle, the Curry County Manager believes the improvements will help with security.

"One of the main focuses of the 11.5 million dollar project construction is to improve the infrastructure, and by doing that will enhance the security and operations," Pyle said.

Three inmates escaped the detention earlier this year with help from an officer.

According to the center, they exited from an outdoor recreation area. They surrendered after a stand-off.

Renovations for the detention center are in threefold. It will have a two-story housing facility and medical wing, updated security and more.

"We will be doing an intensive detention security, cameras that kind of work, doing a retrofit into the existing system," said Josh Kamplain, the senior project manager at HB Construction.

The Curry County Board of Commissioners unanimously approved the deductive change order. It will save $25, 416 on the project. Renovations will be done by November 2019.
