Douglas County corrections officials are tightening safety policies at the jail following two guard assaults — one involving Erica Jenkins, a sister of slaying suspect Nikko Jenkins.
Officers will “harden” more cells at the jail — remove top bunks and other items that could impede an officer in the event of an assault — and step up safety training, Douglas County Corrections Lt. Pat West said.
