Public Safety Coordinating Council

 

Responsibility:
The council meets for the purpose of assessing the population status of all detention or correctional facilities owned or contracted by the county and formulating recommendations to ensure that the capacities of such facilities are not exceeded. Such recommendations include an assessment of the availability of pretrial intervention or probation programs, work-release programs, substance abuse programs, gain-time schedules, applicable bail bond schedules, and the confinement status of the inmates housed within each facility owned or contracted by the county.

The council may also develop a local public safety plan for future construction needs. The plan must cover at least a 5-year period.

The council may also develop a comprehensive local reentry plan that is designed to assist offenders released from incarceration to successfully reenter the community. The plan should cover at least a 5-year period.
