APD wants to build its own magistration center to process law breakers

The Austin City Council wants to build a new magistration center in North Austin so they can process their own prisoners. Assistant Chief Brian Manley says it's taking almost an entire hour for their officers to book suspects at the Travis County facility. The city used to process and house their own prisoners until 1985 when they allowed the county to take over. The 18,000-square foot facility will save the city $15,000,000 over a decade.
