How will prisoners be transported?

Details are unknown about transportation at this time. Talks are ongoing with Citilink and we are exploring shuttle services. 

Will the residents have to deal with inmate interaction while being transported in vans to and from court?

Transportation vans used by the jail do not have windows. Typically, kids do not play along Maplecrest or Meyer. If they happen to be on those roads, a person in the back of a police/sheriff vehicle could look out the window and see them much like they can now while being transported anywhere in the county, whether it is for a hospital visit or court or being taken to jail from wherever in the community they’ve been arrested. There are some circumstances that simply cannot be controlled.
