Dekalb Prison Bus Breaks down on the way to Courthouse

 According to Decaturish, Public Information Officer Cynthia Williams stated on Tuesday:
"Due to an unanticipated mechanical problem that caused the shutdown of a Sheriff’s Office inmate transport bus this  morning, deputies had to transfer some 40 inmates from one transport bus to another while en route to court in downtown Decatur.  Following protocol, armed deputies from the Field and Court divisions were able to block traffic, create a secure perimeter and make the transfer within 15 minutes without incident or threat to the general public.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused for commuters, and we thank you for your patience and cooperation."
