Jails Rules

Pursuant to GS 150B-21.3A, Periodic Review and Expiration of Existing Rules, all rules are reviewed at least every 10 years or they shall expire. As a result of the periodic review of Subchapter 10A NCAC 14J, Jails, Local Confinement Facilities, 33 rules were determined as "Necessary With Substantive Public Interest," therefore requiring readoption as a new rule.  With input from stakeholders, 32 rules are proposed for readoption with substantial changes for the operation, design, and construction of county government owned and operated jails and district jails. One rule, 10A NCAC 14J .1201 is proposed for readoption as a repeal because it is duplicative and not necessary.
