TJP: Dallas diversion plan urgently needs expanding
September 27, 2020
In this NBC 5 interview last week, Texas Jail Project co-founder Diana Claitor agreed with Dallas County DA John Creuzot in applauding Dallas County’s new diversion plan for people experiencing mental illness. Since it only will serve 15 people at the start, Claitor believes it's a modest plan. "It needs to be larger, more widespread, better funded. But if this is the way to get it off the ground, go for it," said Claitor.
