jail overcrowding solutionsWhen any county across the country faces the issue of jail overcrowding the first instinct of those in the public sector pretrial release community is to fire up the war cry and point the finger at the commercial bail bond industry.  Unfortunately, this ill advised blame game could end up being a big mistake for many counties.  Why?  Because blaming the commercial bail industry for jail overcrowding immediately reduces the opportunity for the bail industry to have a seat at the table and to be part of the solution.  The reality is that when it comes to effectiveness and fiscal responsibility in the the criminal justice system, the commercial bail industry brings decades of experience and knowledge to the table.  Instead of pointing fingers, isnt it time that those key stakeholders and decision makers bring all parties to the table to look for the BEST solution for the communities that they serve?
