Attorney General Kamala Harris yesterday announced a new pilot program designed to cut down on the number of ex-prisoners who commit new crimes in L.A. county-- what's referred to as the "recidivism rate".

The program is called "Back on Track LA". It's the first new program to come out of the division that Harris created within her office late last year to deal with the recidivism problem in California.
