Brazoria County will no longer report Texas Department of Criminal Justice inmate case information on its COVID-19 dashboard beginning June 8, according to a county press release.
“The lack of communication by TDCJ has been frustrating,” County Judge Matt Sebesta said in the release. “With approval from Texas Department of State Health Services and the recent creation of a TDCJ COVID-19 inmate case tracking tool, Brazoria County will no longer track inmate cases.”
