A proposal for a jail oversight board in Onondaga County is on the table after 16 months of discussions and community input.
Onondaga County Legislature Chairman Ryan McMahon says this committee creates a place to go if something goes wrong at the jail.
“The incident can be reviewed by peers of the community, representatives of the community," McMahon said. "And then if it turns out the incident isn’t an incident, then they know there was due process. And if it is, then the committee’s job is to make a finding of fact and to make a recommendation.”
