The York County Jail doesn't have enough female guards, so female inmates will be going to jail in nearby Polk County while Polk County's male prisoners will be housed in York County.
York County Sheriff Dale Radcliff told county commissioners his jail was found to be noncompliant after a jail standards review because there are only enough female guards to cover 24 hours on five days, leaving a shortage for the two other days.
Radcliff said he's making an arrangement with Polk County where York County would house Polk County's male prisoners in exchange for Polk County housing York County's female inmates.
The sheriff said his department will start looking for some part-time female guards to work the remaining overnight shifts.
