MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - Construction on a new $6.2 million Jackson County District Attorney’s Office is set to begin to replace the existing building that was damaged by an improved explosive device in 2013.

The Mail Tribune reports (http://is.gd/OdsvdP ) that the 20,000-square-foot, two-story facility in Medford will be outfitted with additional security features, including bollards and outside surveillance cameras.

District Attorney Beth Heckert says her staff of 50 full and part-time employees has been working in three buildings. The new building, which is being paid for by county reserves, will bring everyone together.

Alan Leroy McVay was sentenced to 15 years in prison for setting off the explosive device on November 13, 2013. The device detonated but didn’t ignite a propane tank attached to it, preventing considerably more damage.

No one was injured.
