    first_img Twitter WhatsApp Twitter Google+ Pinterest Facebook CoronavirusIndianaNewsSouth Bend Market Facebook (Tommie Lee/95.3 MNC) One of the side effects of the stay at home Coronavirus world is less crime and less criminals in jail. Several weeks ago area jails began releasing some inmates to create more space to battle Coronavirus. For St. Joseph county it appears that those efforts, and some changes in arrest policies, have helped.St. Joseph County Sheriff Bill Redmen tells WSBT that right now the jail is at about 50% capacity. He also detailed some changes that officers have made–for example they are only arresting for violent crimes. Other cases are instead going through a longer process of gathering information and submitting a report to the prosecutor for them to determine if a warrant can be issued later.Read the full report here with WSBTThus far the jail has had no cases of COVID-19 among inmates.

  • Press release: PM calls with the leaders of Sinn Fein and the DUP: 15 February 2018

    first_img The Prime Minister spoke to the leaders of Sinn Fein and the DUP on the phone earlier this evening about the recent phase of political talks in Northern Ireland. In both phone calls the Prime Minister expressed her disappointment that an agreement had not yet been reached despite recent progress being made by everyone involved. She reiterated how the government remains absolutely committed to restoring an Executive and that it is still her firm belief that restoring devolved government – so that democratically elected politicians can make locally accountable decisions – is in the best interests of everyone in Northern Ireland. The Prime Minister was clear that she still believes the basis for an agreement exists and recognised the leadership both parties had shown over past weeks and months. She urged them both to reflect on the recent phase of talks in order to find the best way forward. On next steps, the Prime Minister was clear that the UK government has a responsibility to consider what needed to be done to protect the interests of Northern Ireland in the ongoing absence of an Executive. She added that the Northern Ireland Secretary would continue to work closely with the parties, and the Irish Government in accordance with the three stranded approach, to support that process.
