As part of its Realignment Plan (AB 109) Los Angeles County is proposing a 5.7 million dollar consulting contract for AECOM to study whether we need additional jail cells. LA already has the largest jail system in the world, and as many as 7,000 "beds" are empty. Can we afford more jails, especially when we are closing schools, fire stations, parks, libraries and clinics? Should a jail and prison construction company answer that question?
