Over 3,000 people turned out to see the new Phase 1 of the Lyon County Jail in Marshall on Friday.

The facility which will eventually house up to 86 prisoners, will now hold 60 with the new addition.

The facility gives the Lyonn County Sheriff's Office more security and many safety features.

Currently there are about 45-50 prisoners housed in the current facility or sent to other facilities.
