The Izard County Detention Facility was inspected August 13 by the Arkansas Criminal Detention Facilities Review Committee. The committee noted that the food service in the facility was well managed and is doing a great job subsidizing it from the inmate garden. Sheriff Tate Lawrence said the inspectors specifically commended Administrator Charlee Hill and her staff. Inspectors also noted that the faculty was extremely neat and clean and one of the cleanest facilities in the state. Sheriff Lawrence commented that the food service function along with jail maintenance, lawn maintenance, vehicle maintenance, and laundry are performed by state inmates (309’s) housed in the facility.
