Revolving door inmates
Violent crime in Harris County has been on an upward trend for several years and spiked around 50% in Houston as COVID-19 descended upon the 4th largest city in the country. The lion’s share, 74.9%, of those arrested for felony offenses had previous convictions. Recidivism is the malignancy feeds Harris County’s rising crime rates.
I will partner with faith and community leaders to reduce the revolving door of returning inmates through programs that increase self sufficiency, spiritual growth and sense of purpose.
