Housing female inmates creates revenue for county

March 26, 2014

Photo by Ted Lutz – This building at the McKean County Jail complex on Route 6 near Smethport has space to house up to 28 female inmates. Other counties now are paying McKean County to house their female inmates here. 

SMETHPORT – McKean County is finding that crime does pay.
The county last year received nearly $71,000 for housing female inmates from Potter and Cameron counties. The county this year already has collected more than $21,000 from the two counties for providing jail space for their female inmates.
