CHARLOTTE COUNTY JAIL AWARDED ACCREDITATION FROM NATIONAL COMMISSION ON CORRECTIONAL HEALTH CARE
On August 16, 2021 the Charlotte County Jail has again earned accreditation from the National Commission on Correctional Health Care by demonstrating compliance with NCCHC's Standards for Health Services in Jails. Accreditation recognizes the Charlotte County Jail's dedication to compliance with the most respected standards in correctional health care.
The Charlotte County Jail underwent a rigorous on-site survey in January 2021. An experienced physician and other experts in correctional health care surveyed the facility for compliance with standards on continuous quality improvement, safety, infection control, chronic care, personnel and training, medical and mental health care, health records, and legal issues. The Charlotte County Jail was first accredited in 2004 and has maintained its commitment to meeting the requirements described in NCCHC's standards for 17 years.
The Charlotte County Jail is located at 26601 Airport Road in South Charlotte County and is designed to house 1,074 inmates. The facility opened in February of 2001 and is a direct supervision jail.
We have a legal obligation to provide inmates with appropriate health care, and we will do our job with innovation, excellence and efficiency on behalf of the taxpayers. I salute the supervisors, officers and health care staff for their hard work and knowledge of health care delivery in a secure environment during a Pandemic.
NCCHC has surveyed and accredited jails, prisons and juvenile detention and confinement facilities for 40 years. The NCCHC standards used in accreditation are developed with input from the nation's experts in correctional health care.
"In achieving NCCHC accreditation, the Charlotte County Jail has demonstrated its commitment to meeting constitutional requirements for health care delivery for incarcerated individuals," said National Commission CEO Deborah Ross, CCHP. "Accreditation is a voluntary process and we commend the Charlotte County Jail for successfully undertaking this challenge to provide quality health care and instill confidence in the community it serves."
Be strong, be safe, and never quit. Sheriff Bill Prummell

UPDATE: This case has been closed following the death of the man who was indicted by a Grand Jury for the murder of Sharon Gill. On November 3, 2023, the State Attorney's Office filed an order with the circuit court to drop charges on Roland T. Davis, Sr. (70), after the defendant died from a medical condition on July 8, 2023.
The 1990 murder of Deep Creek resident, Sharon Gill, has been solved. The killer, Roland "Rollie" Davis Sr. 67, is currently on death row in the Chillicothe Correctional Institute in Ohio. Davis murdered an elderly woman in Ohio in 2000.
During the investigation of this case, the Charlotte County Sheriff's Cold Case Team obtained sworn testimony placing Davis at the Gill home prior to her murder working on a landscape crew.
In 2020, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Biology section in Tampa identified three DNA profiles from an item in the Gill home that link Davis to the murder of Sharon Gill.
The Cold Case Team is currently working with 20th Judicial Circuit State Attorney, Amira Fox and her Cold Case Homicide Unit to review the case, make a formal charging decision, and prepare the case for prosecution.
