The Grundy County Detention Center has been recommended for re-certification for 2018. Detention Facility Specialists inspected the facility on January 17, and found the facility met all the applicable minimum standards.
“Captain Melinda Meeks and her staff have done an incredible job maintaining the level of professionalism that allows us to meet the standards and make progress within the jail,” explained Sheriff Clint Shrum. The jail was initially certified last January. Up until that time, it had not been certified in over 20 years.
