Dozens of juvenile inmates are finding themselves in new facilities after they were moved out of the TYC Boot Camp in Sheffield due to a shortage of guards.

A Texas Youth Commission spokesman says the understaffing reached a critical level recently with the facility being staffed with only 32 guards.

They're supposed to have 92.

Officials say they have lost the guards to resignations and sick leave.

Right now, there are no plans to close the boot camp.
