Roma Guy, of Taxpayer for Public Safety, which opposes construction of a new SF jail, will talk about what can be done, and what is being done, to reduce SF incarceration to a level that City officials have said would make a rebuild unnecessary.

Reducing pre-trial incarceration is particularly promising. 75% of SF jail inmates are awaiting trial, rather than serving time for a convicted crime, and currently an estimated half of SF jail inmates would be free on bail if they had enough money or other financial resources. Blacks are 60% of SF's jail population, though they are only 6% of the general population.
