LASD Sheriff Villanueva's Statement Regarding BOS Cancellation of Mc Carthy Contract

“The Board of Supervisors actions to cancel the Mc Carthy contract (the Mental Health Treatment Center design for Men’s Central Jail) is irresponsible because it would leave high security inmates who are housed in single cells without a place to stay. We agree to the Movement “Care first jail last” however this also neglects our mental health inmates needs for appropriate treatment as required by law. This is a public safety issue and should something awful happen to a member of our community, it lies directly with the Board of Supervisor’s action taken today.” -LASD Sheriff Villanueva
