INCARCERATION RATE DOWN
WHATCOM COUNTY INCARCERATION RATE DOWN BY ROUGHLY 15%
I continue to work with mental health treatment, social service and the criminal justice systems to find pathways for prevention, diversion and recovery. Less reliance on prosecution and the jail, where safe and appropriate, can result in better outcomes for the community, reduce recidivism and lower costs. Much has been accomplished and with your help, much more can be done.
