The Roane County Jail had more inmates when it was inspected in 2012 than it did when it was inspected earlier this month.
However, the 2012 inspection resulted in a recommendation that the jail be certified where the one that occurred this month did not.
The jail has a certified capacity of 174 inmates. According to Tennessee Corrections Institute records, the population was 200 when the jail was inspected on Feb. 6, 2012.
Inspector Joe Ferguson marked “not overcrowded” on his report and recommended the jail be certified.
