Levy County Jail Gets straight A on its report card

The Levy County Jail recently underwent its required Annual inspection for the Florida Model Jail standards and received a 100 percent grade. Sheriff Smith stated Jail Director Mike Sheffield and his staff are to be commended for their hard work and dedication. I can always provide jail cells and guards said Sheriff Smith but true professionalism and success only comes with the right personnel in the right jobs administering your correctional program. The Florida Model Jail Standards is a program sponsored by the Florida Sheriffs Association where peers from surrounding regional correctional agencies come in and inspect jail facilities for cleanliness and operational safety to ensure the health and safety of our inmates. This year’s inspection team consisted of members from Alachua, Gilchrist. Putnam and Marion County Sheriffs Office.
