Metro Week

Season 3, Episode 21 of 25

This episode of Metro Week covers Pima County’s effort to reduce its jail population, which is near capacity every day. The county got a $1.5 million grant from the MacArthur Foundation toward this effort, and it plans more mental health treatment for those who need it, ankle monitors to release people awaiting trial, and reminders so people don’t miss their court dates (one way many locals earn more jail time). Guests: Ellen Wheeler, Assistant County Administrator, Pima County India Davis, Corrections Chief, Pima County Jail
