Second Annual Report on the Implementation of Community Corrections Partnership Plans
Since the passage of Assembly Bill 109 (AB 109) criminal justice officials and stakeholders in California’s fifty-eight counties have been engaged in innovative, productive and challenging conversations to set priorities that balance concerns over local public safety with alternatives to custody that stem cycles of crime. These Community Corrections Partnerships (CCP's) were also tasked with planning for the development and/or enhancement of programming and treatment for offenders with co-occurring mental health needs. The report, available here, is the result of a 2013 survey by the Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC) and fifty-seven of the State’s CCP's on the implementation of local CCP plans.
