(North Las Vegas, NV)  —  The North Las Vegas Detention Center will soon close its doors.

A plan to house inmates at the Las Vegas Jail has been approved by the city councils of both entities.  It calls for moving over 300 North Vegas inmates to the Las Vegas facility.

The decison means dozens of North Las Vegas jail workers will be laid off.

Officials say the jail closure will save up to $16-million.  It’s the latest step North Vegas has taken to eliminate a $33-million budget deficit by July 1st.
