Report 2019-116: Juvenile Justice Crime Prevention Act: Weak Oversight Has Hindered Its Meaningful Implementation (Release Date: May 2020)

Recommendation for Legislative Action

The Legislature should direct Community Corrections to monitor counties' year-end reports to ensure that they include meaningful descriptions or analyses of how their JJCPA-funded programs may have contributed to or influenced countywide juvenile justice trends, as required by state law.

Description of Legislative Action

The Legislature has not taken action to address this specific recommendation. However, AB 1007 (Jones-Sawyer) was substantially amended on June 29, 2020, to include provision that would require Community Corrections' annual report to provide a statewide analysis of county spending on programs and strategies that have been funded, including a quantitative and qualitative description of the total population of youth served in the preceding fiscal year, disaggregated by race, ethnicity, age, gender identity, residence ZIP Code, and charges or activities warranting intervention.
