KALAMAZOO, MI - Three weeks after the jail's new receiving area opened, Kalamazoo County Sheriff Rick Fuller says he is pleased with the expansion, but notes there is still a lot to be done before the $23 million addition is complete. "It's looking really good," Fuller said Monday of the receiving area, which features 25 two-person cells.

E-mails from Undersheriff Pali Matyas, including one sent out just after 9 a.m. Tuesday, said restrictions were in place at the jail given the overcrowding and the facility would only be receiving "felony warrant arrests for a crime of violence," new arrests for "either felony or misdemeanor for crimes of violence only" and new drunk-driving arrests.
