Over the course of the past year, a great deal of focus has been placed on Santa Clara County’s Correctional system. Making an appreciable impact on the custody and health systems within the jails will take months, and a full remedy to this crisis may take years.  This webpage contains the County’s many jail reform efforts and will be continually updated with new documents, reports, and information as a result of fast-paced incremental work and phased addition of resources dedicated to these important efforts

Summarized recommendations were created to group like recommendations and are updated to reflect any new information on implementation of all of the jail reform recommendations.  As such, the Jail Reform Matrix will no longer be updated and any updated status and budget changes will be reflected in Summarized Recommendations.
