Since 2009, 15 people have committed suicide in Bexar County Jail, more than any other county jail in Texas. The problem drew so much attention that it was a campaign issue for then candidate now Sheriff Pamerleau. 

In a 24 day period there have been four suicides in Bexar County's Jail, and the community is asking why. 

Speaking at a press conference last Friday, Pamerleau highlighted the county jail's efforts to stymie future suicides and some of the technological advances the jail has implemented to ensure staff were making their rounds.
