Helena, Montana, court to accept canned food for fines
Independent Record
Anyone with fines owed to Helena’s municipal court will have an opportunity to pay them down using canned food instead of cash. During the Food for Fines event  in the courthouse parking lot, each can of food will count for $5 in fines. Each participant can use canned food to pay off up to $100 in fines. All of the donated food will go to Helena Food Share, which will have a team in place with volunteers from Big Sky Bail Bonds to assist in receiving donations. Those who aren’t able to cover all of their fines by donating canned food can speak to a representative of Big Sky Bail Bonds to discuss options.

You can run, but you can't hide: Meet a Long Beach bounty hunter
Long Beach Post
Because of his 12 years as a federal police officer before getting laid off, the decision to become a bounty hunter was a seamless transition for Long Beach bounty hunter Yousuf N.

Sheriff: Crowding 'crisis' at Boulder County Jail soon will necessitate early releases
Daily Camera
With overcrowding at the Boulder County Jail reaching a "crisis" level, Sheriff Joe Pelle says he plans to move forward with early releases for some nonviolent inmates, including some Boulder municipal offenders. The announcement came a day after the Boulder City Council's rejection of an agreement in which the city would pay to house municipal inmates in other jurisdictions when overcrowding necessitates it. The agreement also would green-light the early release approach.

Arkansas county jail reopens once again after being at capacity
UALR Public radio
The Pulaski County Jail has reopened. It had been closed to all but the most violent offenders since July 1 because it was at its capacity of 1,210 inmates. Sheriff Doc Holladay said legislation passed in a special session this month opening up 600 more beds statewide for $6.3 million has helped ease the situation.
