Harris County Wins $2 Million Grant For Plan To Reform Its Criminal Justice System
Houston Public Media | 4/14/2016
District Attorney Devon Anderson announced the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation has awarded the county $2 million dollars.
“Our main goals are to safely reduce our jail population by 21 percent in three years — that’s 1,800 people — and to reduce the glaring problem of racial and ethnic disparity within our jail,” Anderson explained in a press conference held at the county’s Commissioners Court.
