THE EXODUS FROM STATE PRISON TO COUNTY JAIL- WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR OAKLAND?

On October 1, 2011, California’s corrections realignment plan, one of the most significant changes to California’s criminal justice system in decades, went into effect. The plan shifts responsibility from the state to counties for the custody, treatment, and supervision of individuals convicted of specified nonviolent, non-serious, non-sex crimes.
The MGO Democratic Club is proud to announce a panel presentation featuring representatives from the agencies charged with carrying out the realignment plan: John Keene from the Probation Department, Karen Meredith from the District Attorney’s Office, Carla Kennedy from the Sheriff’s Department, and Brandon Woods from the Public Defender’s Office.
This is the third in a monthly series on Perspectives on Crime in Oakland presented by the Metropolitan–Greater Oakland Democratic Club. Future programs include:
- Can New York City’s Crime-Fighting Techniques Work in Oakland?
- Oakland Police Department and the Compliance Directorship: What Will the Compliance Director Do to OPD?
- Operation Ceasefire: What Will It Take to Make It Work?
- Measure Y: Should It Be Renewed?
Attendance at an MGO Democratic club meeting is free and members of the public are welcome.
