Allegheny County Chief Executive Dan Onorato and Allegheny County Jail Warden Ramon Rustin today celebrated the anniversary of the opening of the Gwen Elliot Child Activity Center within the prison. The warden thanked the 40 volunteers at the center for their donation of over 2,000 hours of work. Onorato says the success of the activity will allow it to be run through the operations of the jail at no cost to the Allegheny County taxpayer. Members of Gwen Elliot's family were in attendance and unveiled a portrait of the late commander to be hung in the center.
