Bexar County elected officials and Bexar County Programs and Services have been working hard to ensure the public has access to prison activity reports and misdemeanor records. In May, the county jail was at 85% capacity, with 4,365 inmates, and by July, there was a shortage of 300 detention officers. The Bexar County Deputy Sheriffs Association (DSABC) has been vocal about the facility's infrastructure issues. The Bexar County Adult Detention Center offers a range of programs and services to help inmates improve, rehabilitate, and correct their behavior.
It has been noted that the salary of Bexar County correctional officers is lower than other major counties in Texas. Additionally, there are certain regulations in place that control visits to the facility. Recently, the DSABC posted a video on their website showing wastewater overflowing through shower drains with a comment that prison conditions remain deplorable despite the facility manager's claims of having a plan for improvements. The Bexar County Adult Detention Center recognizes that inmates make mistakes and provides them with a second chance. Inmates are classified as minimum or medium danger and family, friends, and former colleagues can visit without any issues.
All inmate records are available to the public through the Bexar County Detention Center. The facility also has a zero-tolerance policy for any form of sexual abuse or harassment against employees or inmates. If you need this information regularly, you can get it in printed form by paying a programming fee at Bexar County Information Technology. The Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar is the chief law enforcement officer in charge of the county. Inmates can receive funds from approved visitors if they are on the approved list of visits to the Bexar County Adult Detention Center.
Visits are allowed but must follow a specific schedule with strict regulations. This includes Bexar County inmate arrest records, sentence records, court documents, and other records of offenders from Bexar County detention centers.
