Implemented the Jail's Recovery Pod to provide medically assisted treatment to the opioid dependent and others in custody struggling with addiction issues. This program has dropped the deaths of the formerly incarcerated opioid dependent by 89% and has been operated at no cost to taxpayers.
Beginning in 2019, we implemented robust jail programming that allowed jail residents to focus on self-improvement and provided them with job skills. This initiative continues to drop detainee violence by almost 40% and detainee attacks on staff by almost 90%.
Electronic monitoring for pre-trial and sentenced individuals was defunded by the County in 2018. Sheriff Hain brought it back in 2019 at no additional cost to taxpayers, saving hundreds of thousands of dollars in incarceration costs and returning people to work and their families. Recidivism was less than 5% under the Sheriff's EM program.
Redesigned patrol areas, reducing response times by 33%.
At least six-figures under budget every year, full transparency in financial reporting, and budget sharing with other divisions of the county to support trending public safety needs.
In 2019, the Sheriff's Tactical Training Unit was created to implement stress-induced and de-escalation training for all 240 sworn members on a monthly basis. The result was a dramatic drop in use of force incidents and a sharp increase in weapons qualification scores. This directly enhances public trust and safety.
