I have a question about this sentence.

"Major Wes Priddy works for the Travis County’s Sheriff Department. He said the county decided to hold only people jailed for major crimes, such as murder, sexual assault, human trafficking or crimes against children or old people."

In this context, the people who will be held is the people who was found their crime which they had not been arrested for?
Or, Is it the people who did crime before and already served their full term of in prison?
