Abstract: This Schiff-Cardenas Crime Prevention Act provides all counties with funding for comprehensive juvenile justice programming. The services are to help prevent juveniles from entering and re-entering a life of crime and to provide greater public safety. Each California county reports on the juvenile justice programs within their counties. Alameda County reports on the Community Probation Program, which offers enhanced program services for boys and girls, integrating the work of probation officers, community police officers, and other youth-serving agencies. Alpine County, the smallest in the State, uses Jail Removal and Promoting Safe and Stable Families Grants to fund their juvenile prevention programs. Calaveras County implemented the Early Intervention program for first time probation referrals, and the Intensive Supervision program for repeat offenders. Kern County used funds to develop the Gang Intervention and Suppression Team and the Early Intervention Program. Programs implemented in Marin County were expansion of the Juvenile Drug Court, Intensive Day Treatment Drug Counseling, At Risk County Community School, and the implementation of a Restorative Justice program. The Rancho Natividad Youth Complex in Monterey County, is a one-stop place for at-risk minors offering a range of services to combat juvenile delinquency. Placer County provides a Crisis Resolution Center, a Youth Resource Center, and enhancement of programs at the juvenile detention center. Riverside County has school based diversion programs, a gang diversion program, and a family violence prevention program. Funds for San Francisco County provided for the Community Assessment and Referral Center, the Life Learning Academy, Safe Havens, Robeson-Rivera Academy, and Girls’ Services, among others. Five new programs were implemented in Santa Clara County: Community Based Aftercare Program, Multi Agency Assessment Center, County-wide Expansion of the Restorative Justice Program, Truancy Reduction Program, and Personal Enhancement Program.
