The creation of a Ground Zero Unit within the detention center is my highest priority. The unit would be comprised of inmates who are addicted to drugs or alcohol and want to participate in an intensive in-house treatment program. This program is designed to prepare inmates for the transition into the comprehensive, wrap-around services provided by C-A-P (Community Action Partnerships), such as Crossroads Reno and Sober 24 facilities.
To make this possible, it will require Sheriff’s Office leadership to not only think outside the box, but to throw the box away completely! The words WE CAN’T or IT CAN’T BE DONE or WE’VE ALWAYS DONE IT THAT WAY, can no longer consume our mindsets.
