Thank you for continuing to oppose jail expansion in San Francisco alongside the No New SF Jail Coalition. Despite community opposition, at last Thursday’s budget and finance committee meeting, the Sheriff’s $70 million state application for the jail renovation project was moved forward to the full Board of Supervisors.
The proposal for jail renovation funding will be voted on TOMORROW, Feb. 14th.
Last week we learned that the proposal includes an increase of 8 beds and the cell structure will be modified from open pods to locked cells. Additionally, the Sheriff proposes to move prisoners either to one of the jails that SF has already committed to closing or to other counties like Alameda County while the renovation takes place.
When: Tuesday, February 14th at 2 p.m.
Where: S.F. City Hall, Main Supervisors’ Chambers, Room 250
