Government Relations

With a focus on legislative issues, the government relations team will take a proactive role in shaping laws that impact public safety. California has passed laws that have dramatically changed the criminal justice system. These include:

  • Assembly Bill 109 Realignment, which shifted thousands of state prison inmates to local jurisdictions.

  • Proposition 47, which dramatically reduced the crime and consequences for drug users and thieves.

  • Proposition 57, which eliminated prosecutors ability to directly send a juvenile accused of a serious or violent offense to adult court and created a new criteria for early release of prisoners from state prison

The District Attorney’s Office will serve as a strong voice for the community on important public safety issues.
