AB 109 – AB 109 continues to be a burden on Probation Departments and local law enforcement agencies in all 58 counties. Since taking effect in October 2011, over 28,213 offenders have been shifted to Probation supervision with lower sanctions instead of state parole supervision with stricter sanctions. Nearly 40,000 arrests have been made involving this population, some as many as 8 times. Additionally, over 26,000 inmates have been sentenced to county jails instead of state prisons. The daily average of AB 109 inmates is approximately 4,100. For more information please visit: http://ccjcc.lacounty.gov/PublicSafetyRealignment.aspx.
Proposition 47 – This law has failed to protect public safety, reduce recidivism and provide necessary treatment services. Property crimes have increased in the Sheriff’s and LAPD’s jurisdictions by 6.87 percent and 11.7 percent, respectively, since the passage of Proposition 47. Less than 1% of the offenders are choosing to remain in treatment programs, specifically, 3 out of 22 offenders in substance abuse treatment and 2 out of 87 offenders in mental health treatment chose to remain in treatment after being resentenced from AB 109 to Proposition 47.
Jail Violence Commission – The Inspector General has issued his third monitoring report on the Sheriff’s progress in implementing the 60 recommendations by the Citizen’s Commission on Jail Violence. Based on the report, 46 have been implemented, 9 are partially implemented and 5 are in progress. The Sheriff is making steady progress with one additional recommendation now fully implemented.
