FORT STOCKTON - A new housing unit for correctional officers is about to be unveiled in Fort Stockton.

It was made possible by the City and its Economic Development Corporation.

The facility will house up to 40 officers.

Pecos County Correctional Officials hope it will serve as an incentive for more people to work at the Lynaugh and Fort Stockton units.

In the past, they've had trouble filling Correctional Officers positions.

The grand opening will take place Wednesday at one.
