This ordinance eliminates criminal justice administrative fees charged by Alameda County, California. In particular, it eliminates county-imposed probation fees, public defender fees, and fees associated with the Sheriff’s Office Work Alternative Program.
The elimination of fees in Alameda County followed San Francisco County’s 2018 decision to eliminate county-imposed fees and two years of advocacy by the Debt Free Justice Coalition.
