Lee County Public Safety Coordinating Council (PSCC)
Florida Statute 951.26 requires that each board of county commissioners establish a county public safety coordinating council for the county. The council shall consist of the state attorney, the public defender, the chief circuit judge, chief county judge, chief correctional officer, sheriff, state probation circuit administrator, chairperson of the county commissioners, county probation or pretrial director, director of a local substance abuse treatment provider and a representative from county and state job programs who work with offenders and victims.
The council meets quarterly for the purpose of assessing population status of the county jail and formulating recommendations to ensure that the capacities of the facility are not exceeded. Such recommendations shall include an assessment of the availability of pretrial intervention or probation programs, work-release programs, substance abuse programs, gain-time schedules, applicable bail bond schedules, and the confinement status of the inmates housed within the county jail. Discussions also include agency initiatives during the reporting period to reduce overcrowding to include jail management, differentiated case management and early identification of appropriate diversion candidates. Updates are also presented regarding Problem Solving Courts and their impact on the community, the Triage Center, re-entry programs and homeless initiatives.
