the commissioner may appoint and authorize to examine lockups, or from the commissioner's
inspection that any lockup does not reasonably conform to essential conditions and details of
construction, such as are prescribed by law for plans for lockups, and that such lockup is in a
condition or of a construction such as to endanger the well-being, health, security or life of any
person confined therein, the commissioner shall condemn such lockup by written order and it
