New program helps prevent jail overcrowding; saves $314,000

from WCTB-TV

A new program in Bristol, Virginia, is not only preventing the jail from becoming overcrowded, but it's also saving taxpayer dollars. Ten jails across Southwest Virginia are part of the pre-trial program. It's like a probation program. The goal is to keep low-risk offenders out of jail until their court date. In the past year, the program has kept more than 70 people out of jail in Bristol. That's saved taxpayers more than $300,000. more
