Unannounced Inspection at County Jail

On May 22, 2012 the Lee County Jail had an unannounced inspection by the Texas Commission on Jail Standards. The inspection by the Jail Commission demonstrated that the Lee County Jail was in compliance with the Texas Minimum Jail Standards.

A letter dated May 23, 2012, from the Executive Director of the Texas Commission on Jail Standards, stated, “The Certificate of Compliance demonstrates outstanding leadership and the diligent work of your staff in complying with minimum jail standards. In addition, this achievement is a direct result of the Office’s commitment to excellence and is an example of dedication and professionalism in maintaining a safe, secure and sanitary facility.”

The Director also congratulated the Lee County Commissioners’ Court for their vital support of jail operations, particularly where finance needs are concerned.

According to Sheriff Rodney Meyer, the facility is responsible and accountable for over 600 standards of responsibility under the Texas minimum jail standards. He said, “In order to meet this level of compliance, it takes hard work and dedication by the staff members of the Lee County Sheriff’s Office. It is because of all of their effort that we were able to receive the Certificate of Compliance and I am grateful to every one of them.”
