LARRP Signs Onto Important Jail Diversion Motion

On August 14, the Board of Supervisors passed a motion by Supervisors Ridley-Thomas and Barger directing the Department of Health Services (DHS) to work with appropriate partners to conduct a study of the existing County jail population to identify who would likely be eligible for diversion and reentry programs based on their clinical conditions and current criminal charges. The study must be rigorous and scientific and is intended to help guide the County’s strategy for creating and scaling community-based diversion and reentry programs for those with serious clinical conditions. It is LARRP's hope that this study will provide key insights that could reduce the need for building multiple new jails, and even recommend an alternative to LA County Jail continuing to serve as the largest mental health institution in the country.

LARRP was happy to co-sign on to a letter of support organized by the ACLU of SoCal, signed by over 20 justice organizations. The letter contains critical legal analysis and history
