I am once again very pleased and proud to announce that for the 4th year in a row since becoming sheriff, we have passed The Texas Commission on Jail Standards annual jail inspection.
I give credit to all the hard working supervisors and employees of our Detention Division. It's not easy to keep up with the numerous State rules and regulations while continuing to maintain a 30 year old facility. Keeping maintenance and operational costs at a minimum and maintaining an average of 200 prisoners per day I can assure you, is no easy task. I commend those in my detention staff who continue to work diligently together as a team to maintain the daily operations of the facility.
I truly appreciate and thank each of you for a job well done.
Sheriff Elmer Tanner
