Nevada County Probation Department: AB-109 Search Night Results


By: Michael Ertola, Chief Probation Officer

October 5, 2013 - The Criminal Justice Realignment Act of 2011 (Assembly Bill 109) made significant changes to the sentencing and supervision and shifted the responsibility of supervision to local probation and the custody of these offenders to local jails. This level of sophisticated offenders released to local jurisdictions invokes concern from communities as they are often released from prison without many social supports and are prone to return to a criminal lifestyle without the interventions by the Probation Department and its community partners. However, best practice interventions by the probation department in collaboration with county agencies, law enforcement and community partners are tasked to address the needs of each individual to reduce risk and improve community safety.

On 10/4/13, the Nevada County Probation Department coordinated a cooperative effort between the Probation Department, the Nevada County Sheriff's Office, the Grass Valley Police Department, and the Nevada City Police Department to contact and check compliance on all AB-109; Mandatory Supervision (MS) and Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS) offenders being supervised locally in Western Nevada County. Currently, there are approximately 42 AB109 individuals being supervised in Western Nevada County by the Probation Department.

Law enforcement collaboration resulted in the following statistic during the compliance check operation on October 4, 2013:

Mandatory Supervision clients found in full compliance - 6
Mandatory Supervision clients found out of compliance - 4
Mandatory Supervision clients returned to custody - 2 (warrants will issue on other 2)
Other individuals arrested - 4
Arrest warrants served - 5
Total new violations of law discovered - 3 felonies, 2 misdemeanors.
Total searches conducted- 25
