Advocacy groups criticize $500 million in local jail funding

The Associated Press quotes CJCJ's Director of Policy and Development, Brian Goldstein, on the finalized application, approved by the Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC), through which California counties may request portions of $500 million to fund jail construction. 

"It is now up to county residents to lobby their sheriffs and county supervisors and help lead what this next generation of criminal justice facilities is going to look like," said [Brian] Goldstein, one of the advocates. "It's a really important process that doesn't end today."
