Sacramento, CA -Promoting public safety in our communities remains one of my top priorities. Recently, many policies coming out of Sacramento have put politics before people when it comes to public safety. Every Californian deserves to feel safe in their community. This is one of the many reasons my colleagues and I are prioritizing neighborhood safety for our communities.
This session, Assembly Bill 395 closes the vehicle burglary loophole by removing the requirement that there be proof that the vehicle was locked in order for felony charges to apply. Other legislation protects victims’ and witnesses’ personal information from being released to criminal defendants, and excludes DUIs, child and elder abuse, and hate crimes from eligibility under the new misdemeanor diversion law in order to ensure these crimes are charged appropriately. I have authored Assembly Bill 653, creating a grant program for counties to provide medically assisted therapy (MAT) to assist jail inmates and persons under probation to help stop repeat crimes and reducing recidivism.
While addressing the economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic is critical, promoting public safety remains one of my top priorities as your representative.
