Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee who serves on the Police Working Group which was established to examine police accountability, aggression towards law enforcement and public safety concerns related to these issues, will host a bi-partisan congressional delegation in a tour of several Houston detention facilities and high-level meetings during the week of April 17th, 2017. The congressional delegation is comprised of members of the Police Working Group who’ve been traveling to cities around the country as part of a fact-finding mission to address matters surrounding law enforcement. Jackson Lee is delighted the group accepted her invitation to include Houston in the on-going study. In addition to touring the Harris County Jail and Houston’s Federal Detention Center, the Police Working Group will hold a full day of hearings and discussions with members of Law Enforcement and Community Advocates. There will also be a press conference where the media can find out more about the group’s observations and takeaways from their visit.
