The Pima County Sheriff’s Department announced the addition of a new position to safely reduce its jail population.

They plan to review the jail’s roster and working to identify people who could be candidates for another path, from substance abuse treatment to counseling services.

Lt. Elsa Navarro will oversee this new jail population coordinator and she joined The Show to talk about it.
