SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — A long-running plan to rebuild the jails above San Francisco’s Hall of Justice received criticism from activists who showed up at a meeting on Monday to review Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi’s proposal and said that no jail should be built.
The Community Corrections Partnership, set up by the state to oversee prison re-alignment, was at City Hall to listen to Mirkarimi’s plan to replace the jail at the Hall of Justice while also cutting the number of beds by a third.READ MORE: Longtime Bay Area E.T.

For years the city has been planning to tear down the Hall of Justice and build a new one—including the jail that occupies the top two floors. Mirkarimi said the new jail will be better and smaller.
