Call to Action – CSAC Urges Opposition to SB 1057 and AB 2882

CALL TO ACTION: SB 1057 Menjivar – Juvenile justice coordinating councils. [OPPOSE]

Senate Bill 1057, which is currently before the Senate Appropriations Committee, would make significant changes to the composition of local Juvenile Justice Coordinating Councils (JJCC) by requiring 50% community representation, as well as removing the chief probation officer as a chair and instead requiring that they are a co-chair with a representative from a community-based organization. This measure would also make considerable changes to the JJCC plan development process and associated reporting; requires that counties establish a new request for proposal (RFP) process by which counties much deploy Juvenile Justice Crime Prevention Act (JJCPA) funds; and authorizes the Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC) to withhold or determine appropriate remedial action if a county does not establish a JJCC under the new requirements.

CSAC, alongside the Rural County Representatives of California (RCRC) and the Urban Counties of California (UCC), the Chief Probation Officers of California (CPOC), and others are in STRONG OPPOSITION to SB 1057, which at its core, reduces probation’s authority over their duties and responsibilities with the intent to divert funding away from county government.

CALL TO ACTION: AB 2882 (McCarty) California Community Corrections Performance Incentives. [OPPOSE]

Assembly Bill 2882, which is currently before the Assembly Appropriations Committee, would have a significant impact on counties by not only revising the composition to the existing local Community Corrections Partnership (CCP) and the corresponding CCP Executive Committee, but it would also (1) create new CCP plan development and processing requirements and (2) expand new CCP data collection and reporting requirements with the ultimate goal of redirecting 2011 Realignment dollars.

CSAC, the Urban Counties of California (UCC), the Rural County Representatives of California (RCRC), the California State Sheriff’s Association (CSSA), and the Chief Probation Officers of California (CPOC) are all in STRONG OPPOSITION to this measure.

We urge individual counties to submit letters of OPPOSITION detailing the negative impacts these bills will have on county government, your departments, and the populations served.
