AB109- Public Safety Realignment
In 2011, Governor Brown signed Assembly Bill (AB) 109. It was Governor Brown’s solution for reducing the number of inmates in the state’s 33 prisons to 137.5 percent of design capacity by June 27, 2013, as ordered by the Three-Judge Court and affirmed by the U.S. Supreme Court. Implementation of the 2011 Realignment Legislation began October 1, 2011. Under Realignment, newly-convicted “low-level” offenders without current or prior serious or violent offenses stay in county jail to serve their sentence, which increases the county jail population for each individual county. Those individuals released and were previously supervised by State Parole Agents are now being supervised by county probation officers.
Riverside County public safety agencies formed multi-agency task forces, such as the Central P.A.C. Team, to ensure that those individuals on Mandatory Supervision (also referred to as split sentence) or PRCS (Post Release Community Supervision) are in compliance.
