Courthouse And Safety Center

The Public Safety Center, built onto the Clay County Courthouse approximately 30 years ago to house offices of the Clay County Sheriff's Department and the Vermillion Police Department, is providing challenges to both departments, according to Vermillion Police Chief Matt Betzen. Monday he told the Vermillion City Council his department needs the accommodations that would be provided by a new law enforcement that would be constructed along with a new jail and courthouse if voters approve a $41 million bond issue in June.
