Mindful Monday

Mindful Monday
The 86th Legislature passed a bill authorizing pilot programs in up to two jails to implement restoration of competency in local detention centers such that not every accused citizen who is incompetent has to wait for a bed in a State Hospital for their treatment to begin. The thought was that if competency could be restored in local jails, significant time and other resources could be saved and the courts could move the cases against these individuals more expeditiously. Lubbock County was one of the counties selected and Dr. Dingus was selected to oversee the implementation of the program. She has organized the staff and coordinated the assistant from other partners to facilitate the jail restoration process. She will discuss the needs of the community, the alternate ways the needs can be met, keeping in mind the citizen’s rights, both medical and legal, and what is on the horizon as a result of this program.
