    Notice of Meeting

    On Thursday, March 24, 2011, the Little Hoover Commission will conduct a public hearing on California’s corrections system. The hearing will begin at 9 a.m. in Room 437 of the State Capitol in Sacramento.

    This study is a follow-up from a 2005 Little Hoover Commission report, Reconstructing Government: A Review of the Governor’s Reorganization Plan Reforming California’s Youth and Adult Correctional Agency. That year, the Commission reviewed Governor Schwarzenegger’s reorganization plan on corrections programs and recommended the Legislature allow the proposal to go into effect. As part of that recommendation, the Commission committed itself to monitoring the progress of California’s corrections programs.

    Many ideas for shifting supervision of youth, low-level offenders and parolees from state to community-based supervision are being actively discussed in the 2011-12 legislative session. These ideas include several of the Commission’s previous recommendations. The Commission has re-joined this important discussion and has scheduled this hearing to better understand what steps will be necessary for successful transition of supervision responsibilities in a broad sense, as well as the tools and strategies required to improve offender re-entry from incarceration to the community.

    The Commission will hear from the San Diego County district attorney, a judge of the San Joaquin County Superior Court, the sheriff of the City and County of San Francisco, and Fresno County’s chief probation officer.

    There will be an opportunity for public comment at the end of the hearing. The Commission also encourages written comments.

    Immediately following the hearing, the Commission will hold a business meeting in the Legislative Counsel Conference Room located on the lower level of 925 L Street in Sacramento.

    Also, the Commission will meet for dinner on Wednesday, March 23, 2011, at 6 p.m. at Spartaro’s Restaurant at 1415 L Street in Sacramento.
