There were two things Kershaw County Sheriff Lee Boan wanted to make sure everyone understood Tuesday night: He was merely asking -- not demanding -- Kershaw County Council to transfer the Kershaw County Detention Center (KCDC) to his office’s control, and that he and citizens need to trust council to make an informed decision on what is best for the county.
