LOS ANGELES COUNTY -- The Los Angeles County Chief Executive Officer released a report highlighting the cost of early released non-revocable parolees to the County taxpayers totaling nearly $10 million between January 1, 2010 and March 25, 2011, announced Mayor Michael D. Antonovich.

"Just sweeping dust under the rug doesn't get rid of the dirt," said Antonovich. "Shifting unfunded mandates to the County without compensation doesn't solve our government's fiscal problems."

The costs of Los Angeles County's early released non-revocable parolees requiring Department of Mental Health outpatient facility services totaled $9.5 million and the Sheriff's Department cost for location searches, parolee contracts, and parolee arrests was an additional $415,000.
