Texas State Prisons Halt Intake of Inmates From County Jails
The Texas Department of Criminal Justice is stopping the intake of inmates from county jails. In a letter to county sheriffs, Executive Director Bryan Collier cited COVID-19 prevention and said halting the transfers was "necessary and temporary." Collier also said the new policy would protect both state and county employees and inmates. He did not give a timeline to when the intake would resume.
