The 3 Core Issues

 

  • Over incarceration of people who suffer from mental illness. LA County’s current practice prioritizes incarceration over treatment and perpetuates cycles of instability and homelessness.
  • Substandard mental health care in jails, which results in jail based violence and self-harm.
  • Lack of Accountability and Oversight of the Sheriff’s Department compromises the safety of people held in the jails and protects deputy corruption.

If we win, L.A. County will:

 

  • Invest in rehabilitation and mental health treatment
  • Reduce the jail population
  • Root out corruption to prevent abuses by the Jails and Sheriff’s Department
