On April 4, 2011, Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr. signed into law Assembly Bill (AB) 109, which is referenced as the Public Safety Realignment legislation. The legislation changed the law to realign certain responsibilities for lower level offenders, adult parolees and juvenile offenders from state to local jurisdictions.
The legislation goes into effect on October 1, 2011, at which point supervision will be conducted at the county level for Post-Release Community Supervision (PRCS) offenders or continued by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR). Additionally, a few of the main provisions of the legislation are as follows:
- No inmates currently in state prison will be released early.
- All felons sent to state prison will continue to serve their entire sentence.
- All felons who are convicted of a serious or violent offense, including sex offenders will go to state prison.
- Felons who are not eligible for state prison will serve their sentences at the local level.
This portion of the Division of Adult Parole Operations (DAPO) Realignment portal has been developed to highlight the current processes and programs that DAPO utilizes to supervise the current parolee population.
