As one of Sheriff Adrian Garcia's chiefs put it during a recent meeting: If voters approve the bond "and we don't have that (jail management system) in place, it's not going to benefit us because it's still going to be paper driven and it's not going to accomplish the goal that we hope it will accomplish."GT reported that the jail is expected to be built in three years and the new computer systems, which have just been put out to bid, must be functional before then.
