Third Annual Conference on Public Safety Realignment

Innovations in Public Safety and Justice in California: Integrating Resources to Achieve Successful Outcomes

Thursday, October 24 and Friday, October 25, 2013
Memorial Auditorium in Sacramento

The annual Public Safety Realignment conference brings together public safety, corrections, justice, policy and service agency executives to examine public safety and justice innovations in California counties.  At the direction of the Joint Training Partnership among the California State Association of Counties, California State Sheriffs’ Association and the Chief Probation Officers of California, the 2013 conference was designed by CJI to afford Community Corrections Partnerships (CCPs) the opportunity to re-think mechanisms for integrating resources to produce maximum public safety benefits for communities, tax payers and justice-involved populations. 

Presentations highlight efforts to integrate resources across the justice system – from the initial point of contact, to diversion and treatment, to release and detention decisions, to supervision and custody, to reintegration into the community.  Efforts to achieve successful outcomes are explored from multiple viewpoints.  Topics include opportunities to integrate resources, connecting justice-involved individuals to services, determining impact, changing behavior, and leveraging federal dollars for treatment.  Comprehensive and holistic approaches from across the state to minimize harm and maximize safety will are emphasized.

The conference was designed for County Supervisors, Chief Probation Officers, Sheriffs, District Attorneys, Public Defenders, Judges, County Administrative Officers, Police Chiefs, Health and Human Service Providers and other system stakeholders in California.  It is sponsored by the California State Association of Counties, California Sheriffs’ Association and Chief Probation Officers of California.  Additional funding support provided by Californians for Safety and Justice.
