LUBBOCK, Texas — Lubbock County Judge Curtis Parrish said Wednesday “anything having to do with the computer system” went down, including employee emails and the county jail’s inmate processing system.

Parrish cited issues with the county’s antivirus software that rendered county computers inoperable Wednesday. The IT department is “actively working on it,” and does not yet have an estimate on when the system will be restored.

District Attorney Sunshine Stanek sent her staff home for the day at 2:00 p.m. Lubbock Police said officers were still able to take suspects to the Lubbock County Detention Center and officers were (with one exception) not impacted by the problem.

After this story was initially published, Parrish provided an update and said the problem was isolated and staff would overnight to have everything restored by Thursday morning.

The county urged anybody needing assistance from the county to call first. Officials and employees will try to find “ways to take care of your business without using a computer.”
