Kansas City Looking For New Homes For Some City Inmates

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City officials are searching for new places to house about 110 municipal inmates after a rehabilitation facility it was using to house them loses its insurance in January. The city has used Heartland Center for Behavioral Change as a jail since the Jackson County Detention Center stopped taking city inmates earlier this year. Heartland’s chief executive told city and police officials that insurance carriers canceled the organization’s liability and workers compensation policies, effective in January. Heartland provides substance abuse treatment and was not designed as a detention facility.
