The number of inmates at the Metropolitan Detention Center is at the lowest it has ever been.

County jail officials say there are 1,990 inmates.

Capacity is a little more than 2,200.

The jail recently just transferred 239 inmates to three different counties.

Those include Torrance, Sandoval and Polk County, Texas.

This news comes just one day before the deadline to fix the jail’s overcrowding issue.
