Public Safety Realignment and Proposition 47: Public Planning Sessions (revised West Sac date)

Public Safety Realignment and Proposition 47:  Public Planning Sessions (revised West Sac date)

Assembly Bill 109, Public Safety Realignment, was enacted in 2011 in an effort to reduce state prison overcrowding by placing supervision and incarceration responsibilities for non-serious, non-sexual and non-violent offenders with local county criminal justice systems.  Adding to those responsibilities, Californians passed Proposition 47 in November which reduced penalties for certain offenders convicted of certain property and drug crimes and which allows certain offenders who have been previously convicted of such crimes to apply for reduced sentences.  In addition, the measure requires any state savings that result be spent to support truancy (unexcused absences) prevention, mental health and substance abuse treatment, and victim services.
