Cramped quarters for some inmates and now, the El Paso County Sheriff's Office says it may stop housing parole violators to ease overcrowding.
As of January 18th, the 2 county jails housed more than 1300 inmates, breaking the previous population record.
Parole violators are usually put in the jails while a parole board decides if they should return.
Opponents say it's a bad idea, allowing potentially dangerous criminals to be freed into local communities.
