Harford Co. jail passes state audit


February 07, 2007

A recent audit by a corrections commission deemed the Harford County Detention Center to be in full compliance with state regulations, county officials said yesterday.

The Maryland Commission on Correctional Standards conducted the audit Jan. 9-11, Lt. James Eyler, a spokesman for the Harford County Sheriff's Office, said in a news release.

The commission audits state, local and private adult correctional facilities. Audit visits typically last three or four days and include inmate and staff interviews.

Auditors consider security and inmate control, inmate safety, food service, housing and sanitation.

The facility also was found to be in full compliance in the previous audit, in April 2004, Eyler said.
