The Community Corrections Partnership (CCP)
Established through Senate Bill 678: California Community Corrections Incentive Act (2009), the CCP advises each county on the use of evidence based practices in sentencing and probation. SB 678 created an incentive fund for counties to reduce the number of felony probationers sent to state prison, in favor of implementing evidence based alternatives. More information on CCP here.
The Community Corrections Partnership Executive Committee (CCPEC)
Established by AB 109: California Public Safety Realignment Act, CCPEC is charged with the development of an annual plan to implement realignment. The plan should be submitted for consideration and approval by the Board of Supervisors. More information on CCPEC here.
In an effort to address overcrowding in California’s prisons and assist in alleviating the state’s financial crisis, the Public Safety Realignment Act (Assembly Bill 109) was signed into law on April 4, 2011. AB109 transfers responsibility for supervising specified lower level inmates and parolees from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to counties. Implementation of the Public Safety Realignment Act started October 1, 2011. In September 2011, the Board of Supervisors approved San Francisco's 2011 Implementation Plan. A copy of the City & County of San Francisco Public Safety Realignment & Post-Release Community Supervision 2012 Realignment Plan as approved by the CCPEC on June 1, 2012 is available here.
The CCPEC has released the following reports on San Francisco's implementation of Public Safety Realignment:
