CENTER, Texas (KTRE) - The Texas Commission on Jail Standards (TCJS) cited one area where the Shelby County Jail was non-compliant in a March 3, 2021 inspection report.

The citation regarding inmate prescriptions said the medication records failed to show that medications are distributed in accordance with instructions from a physician.

The TCJS lists jails on its list of non-compliance until they pass a reinspection.

KTRE reached out to the sheriff’s office for comment.
