State gives Franklin County Jail a 100 percent compliance report

January 15, 2012

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — The Franklin County Jail recently received a 100 percent compliance report from the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections, according to a news release.

Warden Daniel Keen discussed the report with the Franklin County Prison Board on Thursday.

County jails that receive 100 percent on their reports are inspected every two years by the corrections department. This is the third consecutive 100 percent inspection for the jail dating to 2007, the release said.

"This inspection and the continued 100 percent compliance reflects well on Warden Keen's leadership, as well as every member of his team at the jail. They should all be proud," said prison board President Bob Thomas, who is a Franklin County commissioner.

Before his appointment as warden, Keen was director of inspection and services for the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections.

"Inspections of county jails are performed regularly to ensure Pennsylvania's 63 jails are in and maintain compliance with Title 37 Chapter 95 laws," Keen said in the release.

Franklin County's jail was inspected Oct. 25, 2011.

"I am fortunate to have hardworking staff members that take pride in their career at Franklin County Jail," Keen said. "Our team will continue to strive for excellence for future inspections along with everyday operations."
