TJP: Dallas diversion plan urgently needs expanding

Sep 27th, 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.

We ask San Antonio: how is the jail now?

Jan 10th, 2014

To BEXAR COUNTY families:

Bexar County’s sheriff is now Susan Pamerleau and she has said, “I pledge to the citizens of Bexar County to make public safety my number one priority, with a strong foundation of stewardship of taxpayer dollars; improvements in jail operations; and family violence prevention initiatives.”

Please email us at help@texasjailproject.org to report all experiences with the jail in the past year. Texas Jail Project also wants to know about diversion programs in Bexar County–how well are they serving the people of San Antonio?
