Allegheny County promises more mental health support, less use of force at its jail

4 ABC WTAE, 03/20/24: “We’re hearing from the attorneys for the plaintiffs in this case who say this settlement will be life-changing for folks who are incarcerated at the Allegheny County jail. This suit was filed all the way back in 2020.

‘I can attest firsthand to the complete lack of mental health care and the complete lack of care in general. There’s a culture in the jail that we wish to shift, that we wish to change.'”
