Danville Sheriff Mike Mondul announced today that the Danville City Jail received a perfect rating during a recent jail inspection by the Virginia Department of Corrections.

The inspection covered a one-year time period and was comprised of 43 Life, Health and Safety Standards established by the VA DOC.

"Understandably, I am very proud of the supervisors and staff in the jail for their efforts to make this achievement possible," Mondul said in a press release. "Managing these standards in a jail built in the 1970s is a testament to the commitment to excellence by the men and women in the Danville Sheriff's Office. I appreciate and applaud their efforts to maintain a top-notch facility.

Mondul offered special recognition to Cpt. Carrington Petty, Master Deputy Brooks and Master Deputy Harper for their efforts during the preparatory period leading up to the inspection.
