CLEAT Public Affairs attended this week's House Committee on County Affairs hearing regarding Texas jail standards. This is the second hearing in the last month as a result of the death of Sandra Bland.
Various topics were discussed such as revising the intake form, increasing mandated training and exploring the use of telemedicine for language barriers. Next week, the Senate Committee on Criminal Justice will also hold a hearing on jail standards.
Your CLEAT Public Affairs team will continue to monitor these hearings and will keep you informed of the latest news.
