Jail administrator named sheriff’s lieutenant

By Walter Griffin

BELFAST, Maine — Waldo County Jail Administrator Jason Trundy has been appointed to fill the vacant lieutenant’s position with the county sheriff’s department.

Sheriff Scott Story announced the appointment of the veteran officer Tuesday. Trundy, who is also a member of the Lincolnville Board of Selectmen, has served the county as a corrections officer, patrol deputy and sheriff’s detective. He will replace former Lt. Bryant White, who retired last month.

Story said Trundy will remain in his current job overseeing the operation of the jail until it completes the transition from a high-security jail into a re-entry facility. The jail, which continues to operate as a 72-hour booking and bail facility, is currently undergoing extensive renovations to handle minimum security inmates.

Instead of individual cells, the revamped facility will house inmates in a dormitory setting. Contractors began removing the cells last month. Story said he expected to have the re-entry facility up and running by September.
