Los Angeles County supervisors vote to implement Laura’s Law
Los Angeles Times

Los Angeles County leaders voted Tuesday to fully implement Laura’s Law, a state law that allows counties to pursue court-ordered outpatient treatment for people with serious mental illness.

The law was recently adopted by San Francisco and Orange counties. Los Angeles County launched a small program soon after Laura’s Law took effect in 2003, but the county’s current program is purely voluntary.
