HOWARD COUNTY - Howard County officials will be making a few changes to the new jail that's after the facility partially failed a surprise inspection.

The Administrative Director tells NewsWest 9, it's mostly paperwork that got them in trouble with the State Jail Commission.

Officials say the problems include improper inmate classification and missing documents.

The Director says they're working on fixing those issues right now and next month they will be hiring additional staff.

There were no problems reported with the actual physical building itself.
