Supervise approximately 87,000 individuals per day (at full capacity) in detention and under the Alternatives to Detention program.

An additional $94.5 million to support adult detention beds for higher risk individuals and $122.5 million for the more cost-effective Alternatives to Detention program for those who are not considered a threat to our communities. The Alternatives to Detention program places low-risk individuals under intensive supervision or electronic monitoring.
