Citrus Heights Police Chief Ron Lawrence serves as the President of the California Police Chiefs Association. They are supporting the Keep California Safe ballot measure sponsored by Crime Victims United. The initiative has a growing list of supporters from throughout the State, including public officials, community leaders, and public safety organizations.
Chief Lawrence discussed the need for these reforms and the opportunity California voters have to make our neighborhoods and places of business safer.
The Reducing Crime and Keeping California Safe initiative was developed in response to the Legislature’s failure to fix significant public safety problems created by AB 109 and Propositions 47 and 57. AB 109 shifted tens of thousands of criminals from state custody to overcrowded local jails and under-resourced post-release community supervision. Prop. 57 allowed many inmates to apply for parole earlier and Prop. 47 changed some drug and property crimes from felonies to misdemeanors, allowing early parole for violent criminals, and a surge in retail theft, car break-ins, burglaries, illegal drug use and other property crimes throughout the state.
