Board Passes Policy to Address Deaths in County Jails



Chair Fletcher co-docketed the board letter and provided the following reaction to the vote: 

“Changes to the way care and services are delivered in the jails must be made because a mistake and stint in jail shouldn’t cost anyone their life,” said Chair Fletcher. “Today’s action ensures the County will support the State legislature as it works to improve laws about appropriate care in jails, and work with CLERB to strengthen its policies and procedures.”
