Religious Group to Provide Services to Just-Released Inmates


Believer’s Edge, an area religious organization, will provide just-released jail inmates with cell-phone-charging services, snacks, and coffee during late-night and early-morning hours, under an agreement supported by the Sheriff’s Office and approved by the supervisors on 7/1. The contract, through the end of 2014, stipulates that the group must provide “neutral and nonideological support” to the releasees. A separate program providing cab rides to late-night releasees received $10,000 from the county last month to keep it afloat for another year.
