The Legislature's special Jail Study Committee today heard consultants from the Center for Governmental Research (CGR) present their findings from their six-month study related to capacity issues at the Tompkins County Jail.
CGR's final report, received by the County last week, finds that Tompkins does not need to build a new jail or expand the number of beds in the existing jail, due both to Tompkins County population projections over the next 25 years and savings in bed days that can result from effective use and expansion of incarceration alternatives.
The study report, entitled "An Assessment of the Future of the Tompkins County Jail," is posted at CGR's project website at www.cgr.org/TompkinsCrimJust/documents, and may also be accessed through the Tompkins County home page at www.TompkinsCountyNY.gov (See "Popular Links – Tompkins County Jail Population Study.")
