Grand Jury says realignment may overwhelm system

Jul 6th, 2012 | By | Category: Politics-General, Realignment

The LA County Civil Grand Jury has said in its just-released yearly report that realignment may very well overwhelm the probation department and urged the county to increase hiring of probation officers.

CDCr told LA county that they could reasonably expect between 7,000 and 8,000 new clients in the first year of operation.  The first four months actually gave about 5,000.  That extrapolates into 11,400 during the first year of operation.

    and last I read LA has over 80% of those on Probation failing to check in….
    So literally what good is it going to do.
    What Brown and the federal judges did is literally put all the foot soldiers back on the streets.
    La is literally going to be the biggest war zone in CA.

    I don’t know why LA county would need to hire new PO’s as that probation dept. doesn’t do field work. So hiring new people to sit behind a desk and hand a parolee a bottle and say piss in this does not seem cost effective. Besides after a year most of these probation depts can and will discharge these people

      Part of all the bills that just passed is a 6 month release from probation plan. Where in if the probationer does not violate for 6 months hes released. So not only are they not checking in, but their off in a short 6 months. This has just became a CRIME state. Just dont hurt anyone and you will never see the inside.
