The Fauquier County Adult Detention Center in Warrenton received a 100-percent compliance rating after a recent audit.

The Virginia Department of Corrections Compliance, Certification and Accreditation Unit conducted the audit June 4-6, Sheriff Bob Mosier said in a press release Tuesday.

The audits of all local and regional jails across the commonwealth take place every three years.

The audit focused on a total of 120 mandated standards, including life, health and safety issues, clerical procedures and financial practices from July 2016 to June 2019.

The auditors interviewed the jail staff and inmates.

The auditors wrote that the staff have “positive staff morale, staff and environment appear professional, staff appear to have a vested interest in the performance of the facility, staff care about work product and each other and staff are very supportive and they stated they felt empowered by the Sheriff and his administration.”

The auditors interviewed 10 male and 10 female inmates about services and interactions with the staff.

The inmates told the auditors they “felt they were treated with respect and had a good rapport with the administration.

“The inmates did not raise any issues of concern during the interviews.”

The audit cited no deficiencies among 120 standards. Captain Mark Lavoie, Adult Detention Center Division Commander, gave credit to the deputies and staff under his direction saying,

“I would like to thank the hard working men and women of the Jail Division for making this score possible,” said Capt. Mark Lavoie, the division commander. “Their dedication and attention to detail were evident in the audit findings.”

The Fauquier County Adult Detention Center has a staff of 36 deputies and civilian personnel. It averages inmate population of 70 to 80.

During the audit, the jail housed 18 female and 66 male inmates.

Fauquier also has inmates at the Northwestern Regional Adult Detention Center in Winchester.

The county jail does not hold juvenile offenders.

Jail discussion turns into a Trump bashing?

Silli says we must help the children with a beating heart and a soul. Just pointing out the hyprocracy

jail discussion is about ... abortion?

less farmer than donkey, definitely cross-bred

Silii says those children have heartbeats, they have souls. Then Silli, in another article posts that abortion is a womans choice and men need to butt out.... Well Silli, those babies have heartbeats too and they have souls too. Why don't you care about them?

I wish Sheriff Mosier would be sent to the border to clean up the horrific mess with immigrant children. Somebody needs to save those children and the Trump administration is totally incapable of doing so. And, please, no hate comments. Those children, the youngest just 5 months old, have heartbeats, they have souls, they have families.
