Everybody and their brother wants to come inside the jail and do things to help. I don’t need ’em inside the jail. I need them at the front door, to meet these and to help these people with housing, with food, with clothing, with shelter, with counseling.

Debra Jordan, deputy chief in the Bexar County (San Antonio), Tex., sheriff’s department.
