Three Texas inmates have died at the hands of prison officers as use of force continues to rise | News Break

The increase in altercations with inmates comes as Texas' prison population dwindles. In three years, three officers have faced criminal charges in prisoners' deaths. Gary Ryan was less than three months away from getting out of prison — and his family was doing everything right.

For the exhausted woman who showers a few minutes longer to cry with the water...

For the person hidden in the bathroom, because she needs a few minutes of tranquility with her cigarette while slipping tears from her eyes.

For the woman who is so tired that she feels she can't continue, that she would give anything to feel like herself again...

For the woman who cries in her room when everyone leaves the house and for a moment she let's go...

For the woman who desperately battles with self Confidence when wearing a denim pants because she wants to look pretty and wear them to feel better but everything just climbs over or can't close...

For the woman who asks for dinner pizza because she didn't reach the time to make dinner again as she expected... Because she's tired..

For the woman who feels alone, even when she's accompanied.

You're worth a lot.
You are important.
You are enough.
You are wonderful...

Elgin Police Department

From Chief Lalley -

As we start 2020, I want to share with you a video that highlights just how special our employees are here at the police department. This video illustrates one of so many things that EPD employees do quietly behind the scenes and that I see every day. While we do share many of the big things that happen and much of our outreach on social media, there are cases you don’t see that impact each one of us on a different level. This video illustrates a situation in which Officers Kevin Snow and Hector Gutierrez helped to make a difference in a young person’s life. I want you to know how proud I am of those who serve our community, people who care and truly want to make Elgin the best it can be. We serve an amazing community and we will always work on being better and doing better for you. Elgin, this is your PD, and I hope we make you proud! Let’s have a great 2020 Elgin!! Happy New Year!!

Children Of Inmates

On a visit last summer, James R. Haj, CEO of The Children's Trust, served lunch to our families and got to know some of their stories.

His agency is one of our main funders and they have supported our children for years because they understand how vital it is for our children to see their incarcerated parents regularly.

We are grateful for their support!

We’re grateful that many correctional institutions across Florida now have children’s corners and colorful murals on the walls. It’s a way for children to feel more at ease when they visit their incarcerated mothers and fathers. Thank you doing this!
