DOWNTOWN — Glendale’s jail was singled out in a lengthy grand jury report of detention centers for being among the best run facilities in the county.
The Los Angeles County Civil Grand Jury on Wednesday released its annual report on an in-depth investigation into various city and county programs, including video teleconferencing, inmate healthcare, water and trash services and more.
The grand jury’s Detention Committee also praised facilities in Beverly Hills, Inglewood, and East Los Angeles.
The Glendale city jail “was a newer facility that through the efforts of the commander and staff can be used as a best practices model of cleanliness, maintenance and efficiency,” the report stated.
The report’s authors went on to describe the Glendale Police Department as a “prime example of positive command and policies and attention to detail.”
The grand jury sent eight teams on unannounced visits to 100 detention facilities countywide to investigate inmate and building conditions, according to the report.
