The next public meeting is scheduled for Thursday, October 28, 2021, at 5 p.m., via Microsoft Teams. Members of the public wishing to address the Partnership may do so during Non-Agenda Public Comment or during the public comment period for Agenda Item 1. Attached you will find the meeting agenda and the draft goals for consideration as part of Agenda Item 1.
Senate Bill 678 (SB 678) on Criminal Recidivism introduced the concept of a Community Corrections Partnership (CCP). At its core, the CCP is comprised of local stakeholders collectively meeting and strategically making decisions. County implementation plans – also known as Realignment Plans or AB109 plans – provide the approaches counties are utilizing in realigning state public safety functions to their local jurisdictions. SB 678 also provides Probation Departments funds used to reduce the number of adult probationers revoked from probation and sentenced to prison. Reduction in revocations to prison must be achieved through the use of evidence-based practices. All Realignment Plans are available on the Board of State and Community Corrections website, here.
Any questions regarding the upcoming meeting can be sent to Erinn Herberman, Research Director, (858) 987-2006;Erinn.Herberman@sdcounty.ca.gov.
The City doesn’t need another survey about trust in the Police. The City needs to act on the information it already has.
Despite the recent increase, crime in San Diego is still well below its 1990s peak. Interviews with experts and community organizers suggest that, while the causes of crime are complex, the pandemic played a considerable role in the spike, as did an ongoing lack of trust in law enforcement.
