CENTER, Texas (KTRE) - The Shelby County Jail is back in compliance with state regulations.

In July, the Shelby County Jail was cited for two violations of non-compliance:

  • One staff member does not possess a valid Texas Commission on Law Enforcement jailer’s license. The identified staff member was on duty and actively supervising inmates.
  • Fire alarm failed to show location of an active smoke detector while conducting a fire drill.

Shelby County Jail Administrator Don Moore said following an inspection this week the state has now found the jail to once again be compliant.
