BRANCHVILLE - Work has begun on a new $540,000 perimeter stun fence at Branchville Correctional Facility.
Security Automation Systems of Noblesville is installing the fence, which will be placed on the inside of the existing dual perimeter fence and will encircle the entire facility.
Construction is expected to last about 90 days. Subcontractors include Electric Plus from Danville and Bullseye Fence Design of Noblesville.
