Law and Justice Plan
During 1999 and 2000, faced with a chronic jail overcrowding problem, Whatcom County government carried out an extensive analysis and planning process to identify the causes of jail overcrowding, identify gaps or redundancies in the system, and recommend a "system-based, strategic plan that enhances the delivery system of justice services, including greater efficiencies and effectiveness." The resulting Law and Justice Plan was developed by the Law and Justice Council and adopted by the County Council in June 2000.
