• By improving efficiency.
    • Every day a misdemeanor defendant spends in jail awaiting a court hearing costs
      the county $45–$50.

    • We need to clear the backlog of cases still waiting to be filed.
  • By working together with law enforcement agencies.
    • The team approach is best. We can reduce the time between arrests and filing of cases.
