 In the below pice by Niko Kyriakou the problem of over crowding at the Maguire Jail is addressed. 

"Unless San Mateo County finds somewhere to put the state prisoners who are about to flood into county jails, local authorities have to become soft on 510 Bail Bondcrime with measures such as early release and reduced  sentences for minor offenses, Sheriff Greg Munks said this week. Gov. Jerry Brown’s realignment plan — now mandated by the U.S. Supreme Court — would  transfer 33,000 inmates out of the state’s crowded prison system and into county jails  starting as early as July 1. It translates into roughly 400 to 500 additional prisoners in San  Mateo County each year — but there’s hardly room for them. County jails are already running at 120 to 130 percent of capacity, according to Sgt. Debbie Bazan of the Sheriff’s Office Jail Planning Unit.

Munks said there is one “safety valve”: an empty facility in La Honda that can hold about 130 inmates. But it would likely fill up fast.

“If the numbers start creeping up and [the state] starts doing this shift, the first thing we would do is open that facility and that would give us a little breathing room for a while,” Munks said. “After that, we’ll have to look at more-drastic solutions like early releases and limiting the types of bookings we can accept.”

Under such measures, a car thief’s sentence might be reduced from six months in county jail to 60 days, or no jail, county District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said. 

“We don’t have room in our jails for misdemeanors and even low-level felonies,” Wagstaffe said. “If they cannot be incarcerated, they may be given some other punishment like home arrest.” 

The new rules would make it hard for cops to take criminals off the streets, providing less of a deterrent for crime, Munks said.

“If we say, ‘No more misdemeanors’ and [police] want to arrest a guy who is disturbing the peace downtown, then they can write a ticket, but they can’t get the guy off the street,” he said.

As it stands, the prisoner transfer looks likely to push the Sheriff’s Office toward a crisis, since county jails are currently exceeding capacity and slotted for closure in the coming years. A new jail, still in the planning stages, won’t be available till 2014 or 2015.

The prisoner transfer also will impact the county Probation Department, which will have to supervisor more parolees, along with the public defender, courts and District Attorney’s Office, Wagstaffe said.

While cutting sentences and hauling in fewer petty crooks might seem like a nightmare to some, others see it as a godsend.

“We’ve created fear around who’s in prison and what it’s like, but California’s system is hugely bloated with drug offenders,” said Emily Harris, the statewide coordinator for Californians United for a Responsible Budget, a coalition working to reduce the number of people in California’s prison system.

“We see realignment as an opportunity where California could put more resources into the community on local levels, such as into mental health services and drug treatment services where people aren’t actually locked up,” Harris said.

The governor has asked the Supreme Court to delay its ruling that California’s state prisons begin transferring some 33,000 prisoners to county jails by July 1 — a process that must be completed within two years. If the delay is granted, the transfer would likely begin after this November, following a public vote on tax extensions Brown hopes to use to fund realignment."

A proposal to transfer state prisoners to county jails could actually create more overcrowding, the very problem the plan is supposed to correct in state prisons. 

An additional 30 inmates a month, or 400 to 500 a year, could start streaming into county jails as early as next year as part of the governor’s much-discussed realignment plan. The plan, now mandated by the U.S. Supreme Court, would transfer some 33,000 state prisoners to county jails during the next two years.

But county jails are already packed.

Maguire Correctional Facility houses the bulk of San Mateo county’s incarcerated population, and in increasingly tight quarters.

Fifteen men can be found living in one 16-by-30 room, sleeping on triple-stacked bunk beds and sharing a single toilet hidden by only a waist-high wall.  

Maguire, the county’s largest jail, has an official capacity of 688 inmates, but currently houses 831. Correctional officers at the decades-old jail say the plumbing, elevators and locks are worn down due to overuse. The kitchen can barely hold the required 72 hours worth of food stocks, and common areas are packed with inmates milling about. 

Overcrowding means those areas are used for church services, working out, watching television, meeting with probation officers, making phone calls and a host of other activities — sometimes all at once. This puts a big strain on not only the jail’s infrastructure, but the success of its rehabilitation programs, Sheriff Greg Munks said. 

“Overcrowding means it takes more time to do everything that needs to get done in a day,” said Mark Roberts, head of daytime jail operations. “It’s the same 24 hours if we have 800 prisoners to deal with or 1,000. As you maximize capacity, you don’t have the ability to keep them safe.”

Has overcrowding led to any violent outbreaks at Maguire lately? 

“No,” said Dave Firkins, a correctional officer. “But just wait.”


New Jail being built for San Mateo County.  

Instead of rethinking who should be arrested and who should be cited and released the San Mateo County is making room for more people to be arrested and jailed in San Mateo County. With over 40,000 new laws being added to the books each year more people are subject to arrest and San Mateo County is building a new jail to house them. The new jail will be located across from the Redwood City police station on Maple Street in Redwood City and is seceduled to open in 2015. 

No news as to what the status of the Magurie Jail will be when the new jail opens. We will keep posting your bail in the mean time.
