Demand Los Angeles County officials take immediate and decisive steps now to save lives in LA County Jails
Given the urgency of this situation, we are calling on the Los Angeles County Sheriff, the Department of Health Services-Correctional Health Services, the District Attorney, the Los Angeles County Superior Court, and the Board of Supervisors to act immediately to protect the lives of the people impacted by our county’s jail system.
This includes individuals in custody and jail staff, as well as their family members and communities. With COVID-19 threatening the health and lives of untold numbers of Angelenos, confinement in a jail facility for even a few hours could turn into a death sentence for many. You can read the list of all of our recommendations here.
