SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — The Bexar County Jail is back in compliance with state regulations.

Back in February, the jail flunked it’s annual inspection. It was the first time in ten years the jail had failed.

At the time, the Texas Commission on Jail Standards listed nine areas of noncompliance. They included health services, sanitation, inmate intake and release and supervision.

At a news conference on Tuesday, Sheriff Javier Salazar announced the jail is back in compliance after a surprise inspection.

The Sheriff says the goal now is to stay in compliance in preparation for the annual inspection that will take place early next year.
