Jail gets perfect inspection, adds to county coffers

The Franklin County Jail passed its 2020 inspection by the Texas Commission on Jail Standards with a perfect score with no deficiencies for a second year running,

and has generating more than $1.99 million in revenue during the past seven years by keeping prisoners for other agencies. See the November 19 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for details from the inspection report and information about the jail.
