Less than four years after it opened, the Roane County Jail is in danger of decertification.
Denise Messer, a detention facility specialist with the Tennessee Corrections Institute, inspected the jail on May 2.
“Certification cannot be recommended at this time,” Messer wrote in her report. “A reinspection will be conducted on or before July 2, 2013.”
The jail’s certified capacity is 174. The population the day of the May 2 inspection was 188.
