California State Prison VS Los Angeles County Jail
There are many ways that Los Angeles County jails differ from California prisons. For one, jails are typically much smaller in population and size than prisons. Jails also tend to have shorter stays for inmates, with the average length of time served in jail being just over two weeks compared to the average prison sentence of nearly four years. This means that inmates in jails are generally less invested in their day-to-day routine and more likely to be transient. The last thing to consider, inmates in jail are typically awaiting trial or serving sentences for lower-classification offenses when compared to those incarcerated in prisons. Because of this, the security level in jails is typically lower than that of prisons.
