Statement from County Executive Pat Ryan

“The jail is a shrine to a bygone era of mass incarceration. In light of our reckoning with systemic inequities in our criminal justice system and our dire financial situation, now more than ever we need to take urgent action. I commend Comptroller March Gallagher for her work on this report and look forward to working with the County Legislature, Sheriff Figueroa and our community to find a modern and just solution.”
