DC Auditor Reports Poor Conditions at DC Jail

Thursday, February 28, 2019
On February 28, 2019, the Office of the District of Columbia Auditor (ODCA) released a report on DC Jail conditions.

On February 28, 2019, the Office of the District of Columbia Auditor (ODCA) released a report entitled, “Poor Conditions Persist at Aging D.C. Jail; New Facility Needed to Mitigate Risks.” The report provides a detailed assessment of various conditions at the Central Detention Facility (CDF) and the Correctional Treatment Facility (CTF) from fiscal years 2014 through 2018, as well as a historical glimpse into the legal history of court oversight at the CDF. It also cites Department of Health (DOH) findings of violations related to environmental conditions, public health, and food service. ODCA makes recommendations to both the DC Department of Corrections (DOC) and the District of Columbia, including compliance monitoring of acceptable health standards and support for a new D.C. Jail facility.   https://www.scribd.com/document/400769643/D-C-jail-Report-2-28-19#from_embed
