Bernalillo County commissioners approved a plan to let some inmates out of jail to ease overcrowding.

Under the measure, the county will buy an additional 500 ankle monitors and use them on low-risk inmates.

Those inmates will also have to undergo drug testing and counseling while they're out of jail.
