Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Neil said he is considering working to reopen the Queensgate Correctional Facility to accommodate the increasing number of inmates in the Hamilton County Justice Center.  Neil declared a "state of emergency" in June when the jail population reached an all-time high of 1,611 inmates. The facility was designed to hold a maximum of 1,240, Neil said. There are 1,422 inmates at the jail as of Wednesday.
