Adult Detention Center earns certification

Comment   Email   Print

Rutherford County Adult Detention Center earned certification after an inspection July 10 by the Tennessee Corrections Institute.

The inspection showed the facility met all applicable minimum standards, Executive Director Beth Ashe stated in a letter to Sheriff Robert Arnold.

“You are to be congratulated for attaining this degree of professionalism in your organization,” Director Ashe stated.

Sheriff Arnold said the report reflects the dedication of the staff in training and the renovations made to the Detention Center during the past two years.

“Our training program is conducted in-house that earned an ‘excellent’ rating by the inspectors,” Sheriff Arnold said. “We used inmate labor to deep-clean and paint the facility to make it healthier for our staff and inmates. The inspectors noted ‘all areas of the facility were very clean and orderly.’”

The inspection showed the Adult Detention Center was not overcrowded and that fire pull stations and fire extinguishers are checked monthly by the maintenance staff.

The report showed a population of 886 inmates when the facility was inspected July 10. Of that number, 183 were state inmates.

There were 718 males and 168 females housed in the detention center with 434 inmates awaiting trial.

This is awesome good news to know that the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center met all their minimum inspections requirements. My hat goes off to you! It is always good to know that our correctional centers take care of the taxpayers facilities. We know now that our funds are being spent wisely.

I see not only did the staff maintained order in the cleaning of this building, but also the inmates took part in the deep-cleaning process. Inmates should have a responsibility to up keep their habitation. The in-house training program will help those who may one day be released and equipping them for employment.

I would proudly say to Sheriff Robert Arnold and staff to continue this praise-worthy cleaning achievements that are keeping the Rutherford Adult Detention Center clean and orderly. There are some Detentions Center who do not make a good report on their inspections, maybe they need to get some advice or pointers from Sheriff Robert Arnold. This article shows that there are 886 inmates, so that's enough to see how well control they have order. The next you Drive by the Rutherford Adult Detention Center drop in and say, "Job well done." They worked hard to deserve it!
