Alameda County sealAlameda County, California’s new budget calls for layoffs and program cuts to close a $178 million funding deficit, including cutting 14 attorney positions in the District Attorney’s Office and 15 in the Public Defender’s Office.

The cuts will likely force prosecutors to limit prosecutions.

The County will eliminate 285 full-time equivalent positions. It currently has 9,300 such jobs.
