In a Nov. 1 letter, Acting U.S. Marshal for the District of Columbia Lamont J. Ruffin informed DC Department of Corrections Director Quincy Booth that he has forwarded the results of an unannounced inspection of DC Jail to the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division for review of potential violations of the Civil Rights of Institutionalized Persons Act, specifically in regard to the Central Detention Facility.

The Central Treatment Facility’s conditions, “were observed to be largely appropriate and consistent with federal prisoner detention standards,” the document states.
