TDCJ Field InitiativeResidency Program


Starting in 2014, residents have biannual opportunity to travel to Huntsville, Texas to visit the Estelle Unit within the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) system. Through these biannual visits, residents are able to see how inmates live day-to-day. During this day long tour, residents are able to meet the infirmary staff and medical directors which manage inmate care in the outpatient basis. Also, residents have an increased awareness of the healthcare system at TDCJ.
