TJP Commentary
  • Face to face observations were not performed by jailers no less than once every 60 minutes as required. In some instance, 90-144 minutes passed between rounds
  • At times not enough personnel available to perform other duties in order to maintain required 1:48 jailer to incarcerated persons ratio
  • Lack of cleanliness
  • Lack of sufficient staffing has contributed to the heightened level of tension and hostility. A review of Serious Incident Reports reveals that reports of incarcerated person assaults have increased from 2020 to 2021
