Elected leaders in San Diego County should consider taking a more comprehensive approach to the health care provided to thousands of inmates housed in local jails, a new study commissioned by the county says. Dr. Homer Venters, the report’s co-author who runs the Community Oriented Correctional Health Services nonprofit consultancy, said the Board of Supervisors and Sheriff Bill Gore should redefine the level of care inmates receive in custody.
