MAYSVILLE - Four deputies at the Mason County Detention Center were fired this week for violation of jail policy, officials said.
All four employees, who were not identified, worked third shift, Mason County Commissioner Pat McKay said.
McKay said there was a "serious violation of our jail policy and procedures," but he would not elaborate.
McKay said an investigation is under way to determine if there are legal ramifications.
Jailer Bob Tribby confirmed four people on Wednesday were "relieved of their duties because of violations of policies and procedures at the jail." He added that the detention center is in "safe operating condition."
Officials would not say what violation of the jail's code of ethics occurred.
