Description:

The average monthly jail population is the number of inmates housed on an average per day in each corresponding month.


Significance:

Due to the design and physical limitations of the jail and Geiger, and the corresponding staffing needs, the higher the population, the more stress is put on both the physical capacity as well as staffing needs. Safety of inmates and staff is also of heightened concern. The current Strategy through the MacArthur Safety and Justice Challenge is to safely reduce the jail average daily population by 10% in 2017, 12% in 2018 and by 15% by April 2019.

Description:

The average length of stay is the average number of days that an inmate is housed in detention services facilities. These numbers can differ from various factors such as waiting for court dates or waiting on mental health evaluations.


Significance:

If the length of stay can be safely reduced, it will also help reduce the jail overcrowding. Our goal is to reduce the length of stay by 10% in 2017, 12% by 2018 and 15% by 2019.
