Yakima County accepts bids for jail upgrades
YAKIMA, Wash. -- KIMA learned Yakima County is now accepting bids for jail upgrades.

The work centers largely around security improvements. Yakima County has about $6 million to spend.

We learned the job was broken down into phases after the bids came in too high.

The county says security upgrades are needed to handle a more violent inmate population.
