California Gov. Jerry Brown is scheduled to meet with Los Angeles County supervisors Monday afternoon in a closed session over a controversial plan to shift care of some parolees from state workers to county probation officers.

The meeting will be held in closed session, according to the governor's official schedule, so the public will not hear the discussion. The state's Brown Act generally requires that local legislative bodies meet in the open so members of the public can attend and participate. Closed session is normally reserved for sensitive matters such as hiring, firing, public security, labor and property negotiations or pending lawsuits.

A county attorney cited "potential threats to the public services or facilities" as the reason to hold the meeting behind closed doors.

A spokesman for the governor asked that questions be directed to the board of supervisors.
