Jails fail to meet standards

Mark Scolforo of The Associated Press has a four-part series on Pennsylvania’s county prisons, finding that “many local jails are struggling to meet even minimum standards for safety, housing, food quality and medical care.” The AP obtained state inspection reports under Pennsylvania’s public records law; the jails “are not required to make public their annual state inspections or the reports they file on unusual occurrences, from inmate beatings to suicides and murders.”
