ProPublica, the Sacramento Bee & the Stanford Criminal Justice Center present a discussion on the aftermath of prison reform in California. Bringing together speakers from law enforcement, state government, advocacy and investigative journalism, the discussion will dig into the unintended consequences of California’s efforts to reduce the population of state prisons: overcrowded, violent and increasingly deadly conditions in its county jails. While realignment brought relief to state prisons, jails have struggled to handle the influx of individuals charged with and incarcerated for more violent crimes. The problems are compounded by facilities ill-equipped to accommodate long sentences, short handed staff, nonexistent oversight and mentally ill people who lack mental health resources. As a result, death rates are rising in markedly higher numbers.
