LAUDERDALE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

The Lauderdale County Detention Center will soon be more secure. Crews will begin installing a security fence around the facility on Wednesday.

The project will cost about $6500.

It will include the chain link fence and razor wire. The A-1 Fencing Company will install the fence, which should be complete after a few days.

The plan for a fence comes after recent escapes from the jail.
