Inmates in one of the pods in the new jail, which was built recently in Moore County. Moore County had two deaths in 2007 which records indicate observation protocols weren't followed. Both were hangings; one led to a lawsuit and an out of court settlement. It involved a 17-year-old. But since the move into the new jail in 2012, the county hasn't had a death.
