Alternatives to Incarceration

The County of San Diego is working with partners and the community to keep people who do not pose a public safety threat from entering or returning to jail. The Alternatives to Incarceration initiative works to identify alternatives to jail for low-level charges and behavioral health-driven crisis, expand community-based services to prevent future incarceration, and promote positive interactions for those reentering the community from jail through transitional planning and connections to services.  The goal is to provide fair, accessible, and coordinated services that address the needs of people who are in the justice system, or who are at risk of entering it.
