...Title

Collaboration with the County Regarding High-Risk Repeat Offenders. (Mahan)

...Recommendations

1.  Direct the City Manager to convene meetings with the Santa Clara County Office of Pretrial Services, the District Attorney’s Office and Public Defender's Office, Santa Clara County Presiding Judge and Presiding Criminal Judge, Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office, Santa Clara County Public Health Department and other relevant County stakeholders to define criteria for considering an arrestee “high-risk” and establish detention protocols for high-risk individuals apprehended by the San Jose Police Department.

                     a.  The focus of the meeting should be to:

                                          i.  Establish criteria for identifying high-risk arrestees, taking into account the severity and frequency of current and past crimes as well as whether there is a history of failing to appear in court, and;

                                          ii.  Protocols for detention to help prevent future crime.

2.  Have the City Manager return to Council in September with the criteria and protocols established by the City of San Jose and our partners in County government.

                     a.  Include an update from San Jose Police Department on the planned utilization of funds for re-arresting high-risk individuals ($300,000 approved within 2022-2023 City Operating Budget).
