SAGINAW COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

The Saginaw County jail could have a new location if the Sheriff has his way.

Sheriff Bill Federspiel is proposing moving the jail from its current location on Harrison Street to the old TRW Automotive plant.

The site, about three miles from the current jail location, is 60-acres and has been empty since 2014.

County officials have been considering a new location as they work to address several issues with the existing jail facility.

Federspiel plans to pitch the idea to county commissioners on Wednesday.
