Texas jail inspectors descend on Dallas County jails for annual assessment

Inspectors with the Texas Commission on Jail Standards are inside the Dallas County jails for the annual inspection.

Last year, the county jails passed after eight straight failures.

This evaluation will answer an important question: was last year a fluke or can the county maintain its compliance with state jail standards over the long haul?

Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price said recently that he and the county jails were ready for the scrutiny.

The inspection is expected to wrap up at the end of the week.
