Nueces County to transfer inmates over to the Victoria County Jail

This would be an additional revenue source for Victoria County

VICTORIA, Texas – Victoria County Commissioners approved an agreement between the Victoria County and Nueces County Sheriff’s office for jail services.

Beginning today, Nueces will have until December 31st to transfer anywhere from 20-40 inmates to the Victoria County Jail.

Commissioners say this decision will create an additional revenue source for the County.

If Nueces County were to transfer over 20 inmates, it would be $60 a day per inmate. Which would be a total amount of $1200 a day and $438,000 at the end of the first year for the 20 inmates.
