Ventura County Grand Jury Looks At Jail Facilities In County

Posted on Friday, June 28, 2013 1:59pm

A new Ventura County Grand Jury report says the all of the 14 jail, and holding facilities in the county meet, or exceed minimum state standards, but that some need some improvements.

The report says that Ventura County Sheriff’s Department, and the Probation Department need to improve facilities to insure the safety of staff, and juveniles in medical areas.

It calls for a remodeling of the Fillmore holding facility, and a cleanup of the Fillmore and Santa Paula booking areas.

The report says agencies which don’t have automatic external defibrillators should get them, to be better prepared for inmates who might have a heart attack.
