Annotation: This report evaluates the criminal justice system of Hillsborough County, FL, in 1993.
Abstract: The Hillsborough Board of County Commissioners contracted with the Institute for Law and Policy Planning to perform a comprehensive assessment of the local justice system and its facilities. The report principally finds that: (1) the inmate population is not growing as fast as once expected; (2) there are many areas where increases in efficiency can both slow the growth of the inmate population and more effectively preserve community safety; and (3) the infrastructure to accomplish this already exists in the efforts of individual agencies and the Hillsborough County Public Safety Coordinating Council. The report is divided into three parts: (1) Inmate Population Assessment; (2) Justice System Assessment; and (3) Space Use Assessment. There is an Executive Summary which highlights key issues, findings and recommendations to provide an overall briefing of the complete study; it does not summarize all areas of report coverage.
