The Travis County Sheriff’s Office has arrested Corrections Officer Carlos Luna, 21. He is charged with Tampering with a Governmental Record, a Class A Misdemeanor.

 

On June 19, 2019, a supervisor was reviewing surveillance camera footage in Building 12 at the Travis County Correctional Complex in Del Valle and noticed Luna did not appear to be conducting “post visual” checks on inmates at the times he recorded in a logbook.

 

An Internal Affairs investigation was immediately opened, which was followed by a criminal investigation. During the investigation, Luna was reassigned to a position that did not require inmate supervision.

 

Detectives found that during the week of June 10-16, Luna logged 49 post visual checks, but video evidence shows he did not perform 34 of them. Luna told detectives he had been falsifying post visual logs for the last one to two months. In his interview, he acknowledged the “high importance” of the checks to ensure inmates’ safety and health.

 

Luna has been employed with TCSO since July 16, 2017. His case is currently under review for administrative or disciplinary action.
