Public Defense Criminal Justice Reform Advisory Task Force
On May 20, 2013, the Council created the Public Defense Criminal Justice Reform Advisory Task Force (Ordinance 17588).
The purpose of the task force is to utilize the expertise of the local and regional public defense communities to obtain their recommendation on county options for preserving the type of innovative thinking and criminal justice reform efforts that have been a part of the nationally recognized work of nonprofit public defender agencies serving King county over the past forty years.
On August 30, 2013, the task force will issue an advisory report and recommendation on the feasibility of the county using outside entities to perform county public defense-related services that promote innovative system improvements and efficiencies in the King county public defense system.
