The Harris County Sheriff's Office is cutting visiting hours at the jail to save money.

Sheriff Adrian Garcia says visitation days will drop from seven to four a week, but visiting hours are being extended on some of the days. State law requires visits two days per week.

The sheriff says the move will save the department $1.3 million a year.
