KCIW LogoKCIW’s Jan Barbas, Connie Hunter, and Jim Newman speak to Curry County Sheriff John Ward, Operations Commander Lt. Mike Espinoza, and Jail Commander Sgt. Joel Hensley in an extended interview at the Curry County Jail for Curry Matters and KCIW, Curry Coast Community Radio.  This is part two in our ongoing coverage of the Sheriff’s office, which faces a funding shortfall beginning in July, and seeks increased taxpayer support.

We touch on veteran’s affairs, substance abuse and mental health, dive into the intricacies of jail design, and deliver insight into the daily lives of inmates and their jailers.
