tonight, questions are being raised about a contract approved by the board of supervisors to extend the city's pretrial program. the program waprogram waprograma new found assessment found otherwise. >> reporter: a tiny sample of data never really tells the whole story. case in point, a study involving the san francisco diversion project. the nonprofit is overscene by the sheriff's office, supervised by people charged with a crime and released for a trial for them to appear in court and do not reoffend. in order to do that, the program is required by law to complete a public safety assessment or psa. a measurement tool that helps the court to determine someone arrested should remain in custody or be released while their charges are pend. >> it is a scandal in a way that they are trying to mask what is actually happening. >> san francisco supervisor catherine stephanie is the only one to

trial reoffended from 20 16-2019. that was five times more at 55%. the report also revealed the alleged criminals charged with the most violent crimes also had the highest rate of reoffending at 74%. >> what did you think after you saw this? >> i was angry, actually. i was very angry. the highest of any other jurisdiction they evaluated. so, san francisco did not do well compared to other jurisdictions in that study. >> this resolution is adopted. >> reporter: by the time this assessment was released it was two weeks after the board of supervisors voted to approve the contract. so, why was the data so different? we asked california policy labs lead researcher. >> how did the results come out so different? >> we have access to data where we can see the very beginning of a case through its resolution. and that allows us to see the bigger picture. >> reporter: she explains the sheriff's office figures only included small samples of data on a quarterly
bases and did not look deeper from start to finish. in committee, hollings admitted they are not the most accurate. >> if people are in the program for longer than a quarter of a year, the quarterly reportings is not necessarily reflect absolutely what is going on, a longer time would do better than that. >> reporter: why was that not done in the first place in we reached out to the ceo of the pretrial diversion program for further comment and received the following statement. the recent validation study of the public safety assessment concerns the entire system and not any one agency in particular. although there is overlap between the population include inside this study and those referred to sf pretrial's release programs. the study captures a brooder sample in individuals who were released through a number of different methods. the sheriff's office confirmed 70% of the
cases involved in the study were released to san francisco's prediversion program, indicating much of the program stems locally and as the long-term data shows t is only getting worse. >> people are reoffending at a rate that is undeniable. this report shows us that is true. >> reporter: the report indicates close to 30% of the cases judges denied following the recommendation from the public safety assessment indicating alleged criminals would still be released despite predictions made, they may commit new crimes. for the i-team, abc 7 news. southern california's will be getting stimulus checks, if you are eligible do not expect to see monneyour bank any time soon. the payment will go out in early september. those that make less than $75,000 will receive $600. families with children will get $500 more, now, you do have to have filed a tax return for 2020 in order to receive a check. some new developments to
pass along. the san francisco board of supervisors unanimously approved a permit to make shared spaces permanent. they have been a lifeline as you know for restaurants and businesses throughout the pandemic. now the city will accept applications for permanent ones to go on sidewalks, curbside lanes and roads, promising a swift process within 30 days time. >> all right, people like being outside, dan. >> they do. maybe more when it is not as windy as it has been. but the temperatures are lovely. >> absolutely. you know, easier to get outside when there is cooler air and just enjoy it. i do want to show you conditions around the western u.s. we have multiple fires burning not just over parts of california but up into the pacific northwest in canada and smoke from the wildfires out west is expected to remain out of the bay area. the blue indicating less smoke here locally. notice the pink. that is actually smoke
traveling accks into portions of the central and eastern united states going into the next couple of days. so the western wildfires having a far reaching consequence. here is a live look from our golden gate bridge camera. the bridge is visible. good to moderate air quality here in the bay area for the next three days, because of our onshore winds we will keep the smoke out of here. as you can see it is just a foggy view. extensive low clouds, fog and drizzle in the morning, a break from the heat in the next few days and warmer summer weather this weekend. i want to show you the temperatures for tomorrow. so, tomorrow afternoon you will be anywhere from the middle 60s in san francisco to the middle 80 tphás livermore, how does it fair in well, try 8 degrees below average in santa rosa where it will only get to 76 degrees? the good thing about this is that the drizzle along with the cooler than average temperatures really helps to lessen our fire danger. so, we will keep the pattern going for a
couple of days. temperatures tonight with the marine influence have cooled off nicely. 50s, 60s, live doplar 7 showing you the fog pushed in over parts of the east bay, also into parts of the north bay tonight. tomorrow morning when you get going, if you are hitting the roads early or commuting at 5:00 to 8:00 a.m., be prepared for drizzle along the coastline, parts of the bay. today, measurable and we will do it all again tomorrow. temperatures in the 50s and 60s, a few upper 40s. cool enough to start the day to where you will start to need the extra layers, tomorrow afternoon, breezy along the coast to windy. 64 in the city halfmoon bay. 76 in santa rosa. here is a look at the seven-day forecast. it does feature below average temperatures. a damp gray morning tomorrow, a little cooler as you will notice on thursday and minor warming as we end the workweek. heading into the weekend we will bring in
lower 90s inland, lower 60s coast side. more like summer, early next week. 96 inland. 62 along the coast. so, we will have a little bit of something for everyone as we head into the weekend. but for the time being, i think we are all in the comfort zone. >> up here, success depends on the choices you make. but i know i've got this. and when it comes to controlling his type 2 diabetes, my dad's got this, too. with the right choices, you have it in you to control
your a1c and once-weekly trulicity may help. most people taking trulicity reached an a1c under 7%. and it starts lowering blood sugar from the first dose, by helping your body release the insulin it's already making. trulicity is for type 2 diabetes. it isn't for people with type 1 diabetes. it's not approved for use in children. don't take trulicity if you're allergic to it, you or your family have medullary thyroid cancer, or have multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2. stop trulicity and call your doctor right away if you have an allergic reaction, a lump or swelling in your neck, severe stomach pain, changes in vision, or diabetic retinopathy. serious side effects may include pancreatitis. taking trulicity with sulfonylurea or insulin raises low blood sugar risk. side effects include nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, which can lead to dehydration and may worsen kidney problems. show your world what's truly inside. ask your doctor about once-weekly trulicity.
puppies. in the north bay. puppies, pilot and a good cause, what more can you need. four puppies flew to carlsbad where they will undergo training to be service dogs, pairing them with people with disabilities free of charge. the pilot says he always has extra room for furry friends. >> how better to use that space than to bring a bunch of puppies along who are going to help people lead independent lives some day. >> it lys great cause.
six fully trained dogs make the return tphraoeuts. they will be linked up with their new owners starting tomorrow. life changing, dan. >> it sure is. you know, i have done reporting as you have over the years about these dogs and the amazing training. these are very unique animals that are picked to do this kind of work and the training is exhaustive. impressive. what they do is mm. [ clicks tongue ] i don't know.
