Detention Center Receives A Top Rating During Inspection

Lincolnton, NC – The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Detention Center received a top rating during an unannounced inspection June 21, 2007 by the Department of Health and Human Services.

 The detention facility was inspected for safety of inmates, sanitation in the jail, policies and procedures, fire plans, medical plans and reviews and other areas of operation.

 Jail Administrator Jerry McMurry said, “The safety and well-being of the inmates is a top priority of the detention staff”.  He is proud of the fact that the inspector indicated no changes in jail procedures needed to be made.  Lt McMurry said, “There is a need for the periodic, unannounced inspections to keep facilities in the state in good condition.”   McMurry went on the say that of 632 visitors who came to the detention center last year, not one complaint was received about the facility.Image

 The detention center staff allows inmates to shower daily and does their jail and personal laundry.  This extra service helps lead to the cleanliness of the jail.  The facility also has a registered nurse on duty about 14 hours a day and a doctor on call 24 hours a day.

 Sheriff Tim L Daugherty said, “I am proud of the jail staff and I appreciate the hard work that they do.”

 The detention facility had 108 inmates on the day of inspection and has a capacity of 168 inmates.

 The Harven A. Crouse Detention Center opened in 1999 and was presented the North Carolina Jail Administrators Association Award for 2003.  The award recognizes leadership, professionalism, outstanding achievement and a standard of excellence in the field of detention.
