Counties across the country are developing programs and policies that safely reduce incarceration in their jails, more effectively use criminal justice resources and protect public safety. This session will provide examples of successful strategies from several counties, including the creation of a Population Management Bureau in the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, the development of a Community Transition Center in Eau Claire County, Wis., and Charleston County's (S.C.) goals to reduce its jail population by 25 percent over the next three years.
