9Wants to Know has learned Arapahoe County Commissioners are expected to vote on a county-wide building naming policy on Tuesday morning. The policy would prohibit naming buildings after people, and if passed, would be retroactive.

Only one county building would be affected if the new policy passes: The Patrick J. Sullivan Detention Center.

The proposed policy would allow buildings to be named after geographical areas or street names near county property.

Sullivan remains locked up in his namesake until the end of this month when he's expected to be released after serving a 38-day-sentence.

Sullivan pleaded guilty to felony possession of drugs and solicitation of a prostitute. He was arrested Nov. 29 during a sting operation in which he was caught on undercover cameras offering meth for sex with a male prostitute.

When Sullivan is released from jail, he'll remain on probation for two years.
