Sedgwick County is struggling to manage an ever-increasing
demand for jail beds. Among the many reasons for an increase in jail population
are new laws, more stringent sentencing guidelines, mandatory sentences, greater
investment in law enforcement, effective prosecution and forensic science
resources. Many of these changes were wrought by an increase in serious crime,
more public outrage at crimes like DUI and domestic violence, and the crimes and
fear caused by emerging gangs.
The Criminal Justice Coordinating Council (CJCC) was formed in
2004 to find efficiencies in the criminal justice system and develop and
implement alternative programs designed to reduce recidivism, and provide
adequate, well-run facilities.
