In its most recent annual inspection, the Atlantic County Justice Facility earned 100 percent compliance with state standards for adult county correctional facilities. This is the third consecutive year it has met full compliance with no findings of non-compliance.
The New Jersey Department of Corrections conducted the inspection over a five-day period, January 7-11, 2019. It included a thorough review of approximately 25 categories including personnel, training and staff development, emergency procedures, records, sanitation, food service, inmate services, health services, disciplinary procedures, security and control, visitation, admissions, and access to courts.
In correspondence to Warden David Kelsey, the inspection report noted the “hard work and dedication by the staff of your facility was evident to the members of the inspection team and certainly deserves special recognition.”
“The public can be assured that the Atlantic County Jail is operating at the highest standards as confirmed by this rigorous inspection,” stated County Executive Dennis Levinson. “I commend Warden Kelsey and his entire staff for their continued outstanding performance. Their jobs are very important and their efforts are truly appreciated.”
The Atlantic County Justice Facility is located at 5060 Atlantic Avenue in Mays Landing. It houses male and female inmates who are pretrial, presentenced, county-sentenced, and occasionally state-sentenced and awaiting transfer or state inmates contracted to the county facility.
