It’s an onerous New Jersey state Department of Corrections inspection that occurs every year.

In the case of the Atlantic County jail, their result is an impressive one, especially because they are consistently overcrowded.

For the fourth consecutive year, the Atlantic County Jail has been rated 100 percent in compliance with all state standards.

The parameters are state standards for adult county correctional facilities. It was a grueling 5-day inspection process by the New Jersey Department of corrections.

“You and your staff are congratulated on this achievement and are to be commended for the efforts made in preparation for this inspection,” stated Willie J. Bonds, NJDOC Assistant Commissioner.

Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson has taken great pride over the years for achieving perfect audits.

This is the 4th consecutive perfect audit at the jail. Atlantic County has also achieved perfect overall financial audits for 15-plus consecutive years, which is unheard of.
