6:01 pm
to re left the state prison -- relieve the state prison overcrowding. >> well, that's the million dollars question. with avenue little bit of room to put some people that's one thing. but say they push 1,000 or 2,000 people on us we would have to release some people to make room for those. >> reporter: here is the story. currently california has 143,000 inmates in a prison system that is designed to hold only 80,000. it has created an overcrowding situation that the federal courts say must end. to do that, anywhere from 33,000 to 43,000 inmates in the state system will need to either be moved to county jails like this one, or let out early. >> you can only put so many people in the jail. once you get to that maximum point you are going to have to release others. >> reporter: so if the state ships you too many prisoners you've got to turn around and release them into the public? >> exactly. >> reporter: it is not a new problem. in fact citing overcrowding and

6:15 pm
support. len? >> reporter: that's right, dana. you would have to say that in the recent past year the san jose police department when there would be any type of complaint that came in there would be a tendency to sort of circle the wagons. a new police chief and a new police auditor and some new options for both officers and people bringing complaints. and that is to sit down and talk it out. the san jose police have more than 400,000 calls for service a year, plus many more face-to- face interactions with the public. they don't always go well. >> i just thought the attitude was really condescending. >> reporter: katherine whitney of san jose thought she was treat the un professionally by an officer two years ago. back then the only way to complain was to take it to internal affairs. now there is a different way. >> the new approach is to have the officer against whom the complaint has been made and the complainant to sit down at a table just lick -- like this and basically have some face time with one another. >> reporter: independent police officer cordell who is a retired judge says the key is to have someone in the middle.

6:17 pm
are. >> reporter: what benefit would that be to you? >> you just you know report when things are good. nice to report when things are bad maybe it changes it. >> reporter: this is all very knew so far. there have only been three cases that went to this type of mediation. according to post-mediation surveys done with all of the people involved, they say that the process went well. reporting live in san jose, len ramirez, cbs 5. well, in san francisco strong winds blew out a window. the sf mart building this afternoon. firefighters say negative pressure from the wind popped out a 10th story window sending it crashing down on to 9th street at 3:00 in the afternoon. fortunately nobody was hurt. but the street had to be closed for about half an hour for the cleanup. and the winds were still blowing pretty strong out there, roberta. >> wind-swept blue skies highs from 59 degrees in half moon bay to 79 in sonoma. >> the trees are blowing around a little bit.
