Fremont Police Detention Facility Offers Pay Upgrade For Jail Stay
FREMONT, CA - AUGUST 01: Fremont police Lt. Mark Devine looks into an empty jail cell at the Fremont Police Detention Facility on August 1, 2013 in Fremont, California. The Fremont Police Department has started to offer inmates who are serving short sentences on lesser charges an option to ''pay to stay'' for a one-time fee of $45 and $155 a night to stay in a smaller, quieter facility and avoid going to county jails. The city could stand to make $244,000 annually if 16 inmates spent two nights a week under the program.
