Chatham County Detention Center to switch drinks available to inmates after health concerns

Posted: Updated:
CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

Because of an increased concern with hypertension and diabetes, the Chatham County Detention Center will be switching what beverages will be made available to inmates.

Inmates will now be able to purchase PUSH Beverage products, which contain half the sugar, are gluten free and have no caffeine.

PUSH has a variety of flavors that can be offered to inmates at the same price point they have been paying. If the detention center had not made the switch, prices would have increased.

The switch will take place on June 15.
