Ind. Gov't. - Undercover in the Clark County jail

Long, fascinating story by Elizabeth DePompei of the News and Tribune (here via the Indiana Economic Digest) - it begins:

JEFFERSONVILLE — Clark County Sheriff Jamey Noel knows that when someone is booked into his jail, that person is likely at one of the lowest points of an addiction or mental illness.

Housing them inside a pod isn't enough, Noel said. The majority of people in the Clark County jail need some sort of treatment to keep them from coming back. But how can an underfunded, understaffed jail possibly live up to the task? That's what Noel wanted to explore when he agreed to let TV cameras and undercover participants in the jail last fall.
