Grayson Co. Health Department asks for approval of full time staff member at county jail

By  | 

GRAYSON CO., TX -- The Grayson County Health Department asked the commissioners court Tuesday to approve one of their part-time jail staff members to work full time in the health program at the Grayson County Jail.

They've had trouble for the past year attracting and keeping qualified staff members at the jail.

The jail medical center has to be open 24/7 according to federal and state laws, and jail standards require a certain number of people to be present at all times.

The court was receptive to the request and approved the full time position.
