Roane County Sheriff Jack Stockton said he plans to send each commissioner a letter about overcrowding issues at the jail.
The certified capacity is 174. At 4:34 p.m. on Feb. 25, Chief Deputy Tim Phillips said the inmate capacity was 233.
He said it was 240 when he got to work that morning.
“Every pod we’ve got has somebody sleeping on the floor,” Phillips said.
There was 63 inmates in the women’s pod, which Phillips said is certified to hold 32.
