Operation Safe Release

Since the start of the Coronavirus pandemic, the State’s Attorney’s office has stressed the importance of moving swiftly and responsibly to reduce the jail population.

On March 1, 2020, we activated Operation Safe Release, where we have been actively working with the Office of the Public Defender, the Judiciary, and the Department of Corrections. Our efforts are ongoing, which is critical to ensuring that the detention center has the designated space to appropriately care for those who must remain in custody as a matter of public safety.
