Wood County Jail Removed From Non-compliant List

March 23, 2023- The Wood County Jail has been removed from a state non-compliant list.

The jail has previously been on the list after a state inspection. The report stated that a jail nurse did not pack medication properly, resulting in an inmate not receiving medication. It was also discovered that improper medication was dispensed to an inmate resulting in the inmate being transported to the hospital.

The Texas Commission on Jail Standards will list jail deemed non-compliant on its website. Once a jail passes a follow-up inspection, that jail is removed from the list.
