21st Stop – Boone County Jail
Warren had a great visit with JA Damon Reynolds, Sergeant Alicia Koetting and DO Kristen Arendt at the Boone County Jail in Columbia, Missouri. It was an honor today for Warren to tour Missouri's first nationally accredited jails! In 2019, Boone County Sheriff's Department successfully met accreditation requirements through NIJO.
Regarding the jail's accreditation, Sheriff Dwayne Carey stated:
"Boone County Sheriff Dwayne Carey stated “I am extremely proud of what our detention branch has accomplished, as the accreditation process required the wiliness to recognize there is always room to be better. With that came a lot of additional work and ultimately the acceptance of new policies. The accreditation award is recognition of not only the work they did to reach this goal, but the work they do each and every day.”
