Jail Inspection a Success


Once again, I am very pleased and proud to announce that for the 7th year in a row since becoming Sheriff, the Navarro County Jail has passed The Texas Commission On Jail Standards annual jail inspection.

There is no warning of when an inspection will take place. We only know it will be conducted sometime during the year.

I give credit to all the hard working supervisors and employees of our Detention Division as it is not easy to keep up with the numerous State rules and regulations while continuing to maintain a 31 year old facility. Keeping maintenance and operational costs at a minimum and maintaining an average of 242 prisoners per day and all that goes with, 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 do appreciate and thank each one of you for a job well done.

Sheriff Elmer Tanner
