About Alternatives to Incarceration

San Diego County is collaborating with partners and the community to keep people who do not pose a public safety threat from entering jail. On May 23, 2023, the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) presented its Final Report and Recommendations on Alternatives to Incarceration to the Board of Supervisors.  On that same date, County staff presented recommendations for supportive services and County actions to support the plan.  The Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the County Work Plan for Alternatives to Incarceration.

The efforts to identify Alternatives to Incarceration started in October 2021, when the Board of Supervisors directed County staff to work with justice and health partners, services providers and community members to recommend projects to safely reduce jail populations.
