Nearly 500 county and law enforcement leaders gathered in Sacramento on September 21 for a one-day conference highlighting successful programs and strategies to assist in the implementation of criminal justice realignment in California.
Beginning on October 1, as mandated by AB 109, counties rather than the state will take responsibility for the custody, treatment, and supervision of individuals convicted of specified nonviolent, non-serious, non-sex crimes.
The September 21 conference was focused on giving local officials the tools they need to succeed in managing offenders while reducing recidivism and protecting the public. Presented in partnership with the California Association of Counties, the California State Sheriffs Association, and the Chief Probation Officers of California, the conference was sponsored by the California Endowment, The California Wellness Foundation, Public Welfare Foundation, Rosenberg Foundation, and the Womens Foundation of California.
