NO MORE DEATHS!
NO MÁS MUERTES!
Since August 2012, at least four people have died in Santa Cruz County Jail from lack of medical care: Christy Sanders, Rick Prichard, Brant Monnet, and Bradley Gordon Dreher.
In July 2012, the Santa Cruz Board of Supervisors voted to outsource county jail medical care to Monterey-based California Forensic Medical Group. CFMG provides services for 25 CA counties and has an extensive history of lawsuits against them related to inadequate care, inmate abuse, and neglect.
We demand that:
Santa Cruz County officials provide real healthcare within the county jail, eliminate pretrial detention, and reallocate jail funding to create drug treatment centers and welfare programs outside of SC County Jail.
