In Sacramento County, Justice is Served Efficiently with VOP In Lieu Night Court
What if… It’s the phrase that started off a sea change in Sacramento County Superior Court. What if we could lessen the time it takes to get a court hearing without infringing on defendants’ rights? What if we could reduce jail overcrowding safely? What if we could spend more time on the most complex cases? What if we could save the county money and relieve strain on the justice system in Sacramento? The answer to the “what if” came in the creation of Violation of Probation In Lieu Night Court: a collaborative project of the Sacramento Superior Court, District Attorney, Public Defender, Probation and Sheriff Departments that has saved the county $12.6 million over the past two years.
