Sanitize Jail

An ultraviolet light-emitting device is being used to help disinfect the Ottawa County Jail.

Ottawa County Sheriff Steve Kempker said his department had already been looking into the purchase of an ultraviolet light emitter when the COVID-19 outbreak began.

Now, a month into use of the new, “about $35,000” machine, Kempker said the difference is noticeable. They refer to the newly purchased device as a “bug zapper,” he said.
