Adult Justice Operational Master Plan
The purpose of King County's Adult Justice Operational Master Plan (AJOMP) effort is to work collaboratively across King County criminal justice partners to ensure that the criminal justice system is fair, effective, efficient and integrated.
On September 5, 2000, the King County Council passed Motion 11001 which approved the first AJOMP work plan. The AJOMP effort was initiated to respond to a growing detention population (that was projected to exceed available detention capacity) and determine if there were inmate populations being housed in the jail that could be sanctioned in a less restrictive manner. Phase I of the AJOMP was completed in 2002 and resulted in 18 recommendations focused on reducing failure to appear, improving case processing and reducing jail capacity. Phase II of the AJOMP was completed in 2004 and resulted in five recommendations focused on developing a multi-agency data reporting system and improving criminal case processing.
King County's criminal justice system partners continue to build on the changes made as a result of AJOMP I and II. Under the direction of the Criminal Justice Council, the AJOMP Work Group meets regularly to ensure ongoing collaboration and coordination across the system. The group's current focus is on exploring how King County can make better use of its alternatives to incarceration.
