El Paso, TX - The Texas Commission on Jail Standards (TCJS) completed its annual inspection of the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Detention Facilities. 

“I am pleased to announce to the El Paso community that the El Paso County Jail has once again passed the yearly inspection conducted by the Texas Commission on Jail Standards.  What makes this even more impressive is that the inspections are unannounced and the inspectors routinely comment that our jail is one of the best-managed jail in the State.  This would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of the men and women of the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office as well as my management team.  I would also like to thank the El Paso County Commissioners Court, as well as other County Departments, who we rely on for support and assistance.” – Sheriff Richard Wiles

The Texas Commission on Jail Standards sets rules and procedures establishing minimum standards for the construction, maintenance, and operation of county jails; for the custody, care, and treatment of prisoners; for the number of jail supervisory personnel; and for programs and services to meet the needs of prisoners.

            The purpose of the annual inspection is to review and ensure compliance to the over 600 standards mandated by the Commission.  Safety equipment, such as fire hoses, fire alarms, smoke evacuation, and Scot Air packs were inspected and emergency drills were conducted and observed.  Inspectors reviewed booking, classification, releasing processes. Inmate files and health service records were reviewed for accuracy and compliance. Discipline and grievance records were inspected.  Visitation procedures, recreation records, religious practices policies, and correspondence policies were audited for compliance. 

A walk-through of both facilities was conducted where the inspectors verified that all facility equipment in inmate occupied areas was operational.   The facilities were inspected for cleanliness and sanitation procedures were reviewed. The Food Service sections and inmate menus were inspected and reviewed.  The Health Services sections were inspected and reviewed.

After the four-day unannounced inspection was complete, both facilities were found to be in compliance with the Texas Commission on Jail Standards.
