During the Monday morning meeting of the Delta County Commissioners, Delta County Judge Herb Brookshire pleasantly announced the Delta County Jail has passed the Texas Commission on Jail Standards. The letter stated this “acknowledges the excellent work on the jail” and the certificate represents the compliance and “outstanding leadership achieved by the officers… maintaining a safe and secure facility.” The letter also extended appreciation to the Commissioners Court, who are “vital in the support of the Jail.”

In Texas, 17-year-olds can be punished as adults.

COOPER - In a recent letter to Delta County Sheriff Gerald Teague from the Texas Commission on Jail Standards it was stated a recent re-inspection of the facility to be deemed in compliance.
