Alternatives to Incarceration
The Board of Supervisors commissioned in February 2019 a County Work Group on Alternatives to Incarceration charged with developing a “road map with an action-oriented framework and implementation plan to scale alternatives to incarceration and diversion so care and services are provided first and jail is a last resort.” The work group has produced a report “Care First, Jails Last” with a variety of recommendations. Brittney Weissman the Executive Director of NAMI Greater Los Angeles County(GLAC) was a member of the work group and will tell us about the work group, their recommendations and continuing work.
She will also report on other NAMI GLAC efforts across the county with Measure J and the consolidation of NAMI affiliates into NAMI GLAC. Please see below for more information about committees working to develop recommendations on Measure J approved by LA County voters in November. Measure J is the proposition requiring 10% of locally-generated revenue go to community investment and alternatives to incarceration. For information on how you can participate in stakeholder input go to Measure J Re-Imagine LA Advisory Sub-Committees.
Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Chair Hilda Solis on Monday, Jan. 18 delivered a rare executive order widening the county’s vaccine rollout.
As debate over the slower-than expected rollout heated up anew, Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Chair Hilda Solis on Monday, Jan. 18 ordered that coronavirus vaccines be made available to residents 65 years of age and older beginning Thursday, Jan. 21.
“The COVID-19 vaccine rollout has been an enormous undertaking, especially during an unprecedented surge where cases, hospitalizations, and deaths continue to skyrocket,” said Solis in a statement that accompanied her executive order. “However, if we are to ever get out of this dark winter, it is critical that we make headway vaccinating people 65 years of age and older as soon as possible – in line with Governor Gavin Newsom’s recommendations.”
Details were not yet available for how seniors could sign up, but the order directed county health officials to provide additional information for eligible residents. In the meantime, officials urged residents to visit VaccinateLACounty.com to sign up for email alerts.
