Supervisors support Laura’s Law
San Diego Union-Tribune

The San Diego County Board of Supervisors has taken a significant step toward implementing a law that could give local courts power to order treatment for mentally ill people who may be a threat to themselves or others.

The board on Tuesday voted 4-1 to authorize the director of the Health and Human Services Agency to convene a team from various county agencies to prepare a plan to implement what is known as “Laura’s Law.”
