My Position on Criminal Justice Reform
Throughout my 30 years in law enforcement, I’ve seen first-hand the human and monetary cost of high recidivism rates and our broken criminal justice system. While Sheriff of Fort Bend County, I created cutting edge recidivism reduction programs like HVAC and welding training programs for non-violent Fort Bend County jail inmates, at no cost to taxpayers. These programs gave inmates the skills needed to gain employment following their release. I will continue using this experience in Congress to be a voice for criminal justice reform.
