CSAC’s Administration of Justice Policy Committee meeting will be held during the CSAC Annual Meeting on Thursday, November 30, from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 am at the Sacramento Convention Center, Room 314.

A mix of informational and agenda items will be before the committee, including a discussion on how the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) is coordinating a statewide effort to combat ideologically motivated violence, a discussion on efforts that Riverside County has engaged in to reform their criminal justice system and a brief overview of CSAC’s Cannabis policy, advocacy and outreach efforts.

In addition, here are a couple of workshops of interest:

Criminal Justice Reforms Workshop on County-State Collaboration Wednesday, November 29, 2017 · 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.

Over the last six years, California has undergone major reforms in the criminal justice system to improve offender outcomes, reduce recidivism, and eliminate federal oversight of our state correctional system. As counties have partnered with the state in making these efforts successful, we now embark on implementing another criminal justice reform, Proposition 57, the Public Safety and Rehabilitation Act. This workshop will look at the implementation of Proposition 57, the outcomes that CDCR has seen over the last five years, and the impact these changes can have on our local communities.

Making Criminal Justice Work: Exploring Evidence-Based Practices
Wednesday, November 29, 2017 · 3:00 p.m. to 4:15 p.m.

CSAC has been partnering with the Pew-MacArthur Results First Initiative since 2015 to support county leaders in evidence-based policymaking in the criminal justice arena. The partnership’s focus is to improve public safety by implementing evidence-based programs that will produce the best outcomes for residents as well as the highest rate of return on a county’s investment in criminal justice, juvenile justice, or behavioral health. This workshop will equip county leaders in navigating evidence and cost-based data and how best to integrate it in policy and budget decision-making.
