PROJECT

Los Angeles County seeks to reform its bail system so that individuals awaiting trial aren’t held in jail because they can’t afford to pay. To that end, the L.A. County Probation Department is partnering with FUSE executive fellow Meha Bola to revamp its operations and support the development and implementation of a pilot program for bail reform. Through these efforts, L.A. County seeks to keep more justice-involved residents who are awaiting trial out of jail and connected to their communities.
