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

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.

The inspectors commented on the consistently compliant results of our inspections, noting that our facilities are among the best in the State.  They spoke highly of the degree of pride and professionalism displayed by all Sheriff’s Office employees.

  “The reason our facilities pass these rigorous inspections every year is due to the hard work and dedication of our detention officers and staff.” said Sheriff Richard Wiles. Additionally, the Sheriff acknowledges the continued support of the County Judge, and County Commissioners.
