Pasco jailThe Pasco County Jail now has a housing unit dedicated to military veterans.

The unit which holds 32 inmates opened Tuesday. It will offer a range of services for veterans, including counseling, rehabilitation, job placement, life skills and outreach programs.

The idea came from Capt. Ray Revell, who heard of a similar program during a 10-week leadership training trip to FBI headquarters in Quantico, Va., in 2012.

"We want to help some of these guys get their pride and integrity back," Revell said. "A lot of them suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. Some have substance abuse problems. Others are homeless."

For Sheriff Chris Nocco, the veteran's unit is an example of a transforming jail.

"We're changing the jail in that this is no longer just about housing, this is about transforming people to be who they used to be before they committed a crime or fell into issues with substance abuse or mental health issues," Nocco said.

The veteran's program, he said, offers a way for veteran's get back on their feet.
