About Current Members
The Reentry Council is composed of 24 members. There are five co-chairs: Mayor of San Francisco, Public Defender, Chief Adult Probation Officer, District Attorney, and Sheriff. In addition to a representative from the Board of Supervisors and the Superior Court, the following City/County offices are represented: Department of Child Support Services, Department of Children, Youth & Their Families, Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing, Department of Public Health, Human Services Agency, Juvenile Probation Department, Office of Economic and Workforce Development, and San Francisco Police Department. Other public officials include representatives from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation Parole Operations Division and U.S. Probation Office.
Three Mayoral appointees and four people appointed by the Board of Supervisors make up the remaining seven seats on the Council. These appointees must be formerly incarcerated at the San Francisco County Jail, a California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation adult facility, and/or a United States Bureau of Prisons facility.
In addition to the 24 Council members, dozens of people serve on subcommittees, representing a range of individual and organizational stakeholders. The subcommittees each meet approximately every two months.
