Santa Rosa County jail first in Florida to receive federal certification
SANTA ROSA COUNTY -- The Santa Rosa County Jail is the first in Florida to receive a new federal certification.
The jail was just certified as meeting all requirements of the Prison Rape Elimination Act.
That was passed by congress in 2003.
The sheriff's office says they're only the second facility in the country to meet the forty standards set down in the act.
