Creek County officials dedicated Sapulpa's new "Creek County Justice Center" Friday afternoon.

The $9-million facility was paid for using money from a one cent sales tax voters passed back in 2001.

The new jail has state-of-the-art security system and a high-efficiency heating and cooling system, but the Sheriff Steve Toliver says the best part is all the extra room. “We just ran out of space and it was just time to build a new jail, instead of having to let a lot of criminals go like we were having to do."

The new county jail will be operated as a department of the Creek County Sheriff's Office.
