SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - The Shasta County Jail expansion is complete, with more than 100 new beds for inmates.

Redding's Police Chief Roger Moore says more space for inmates means fewer criminals being caught and released.

Once out, many of those criminals will then commit other crimes, which has led many people in the area to call the jail a revolving door.

The chief says having to re-arrest the same individuals uses up a huge amount of time, money and resources from the department. 

"For the Redding Police Department, we are going to be focusing on those repeat offenders that waste a lot of our law enforcement resources time and that just constantly victimize people in the community," Moore said. 

Moore said over a six-month period, the same 30 people accounted for 422 arrests. 

If those people are behind bars, officers could potentially have time more time for proactive police work.
