Inmates Returned to Hunt County Jail After Major Gas Leak

As of February 22, 2019 the Hunt County Detention Center has been able to return to normal operation.

Once the facility was back full operation and in compliance with Texas Jail Standards all inmates were returned back to the facility.

The Hunt County Sheriff’s Office would like to extend our gratitude for all the assistance provided by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office, Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office, Dallas County Sheriff’s Office and the Greenville Police Department for their assistance this week while our building was being repaired.

Sheriff Meeks stated: “This has been a very difficult process in evacuating all inmates, keeping up with Court schedules and the re-housing the inmates this weekend. I can’t begin to say how much I have appreciated all the help we received from outside agencies because without their help this would have been extremely difficult”.
