The North Dakota Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation audited the Barnes County Correctional Center on May 22 and will allow the jail to remain open as a Grade 1 facility for a year.

That means the jail can again hold inmates up to one year.

A report sent to the media this week stated, “The BCCF will continue to be monitored by the DOCR until the year’s end. At that time, BCCF must have a plan in place to either extensively renovate or build a new jail.”

The audit found the BCCF to be non-compliant with three standards and compliant with 102.

More on this story can be found in the July 13 edition of the Times-Record.
