  Annotation: In Oxnard, Calif., the District Attorney's Office has been actively involved in the serious habitual offender/drug involved (SHO/DI) program since its inception.
  Abstract: Juvenile career criminal cases are handled vertically by the same prosecutor from beginning to end. The prosecutor reviews, makes filing decisions, makes all appearances on court, and handles the same juvenile on subsequent cases. This permits the prosecutor to get to know the juvenile, his family and associates, and his patterns. Working with police, prosecutors developed a checklist to ensure that information is shared at each stage of the proceedings. Prosecutors keep in constant touch with police crime analysts, as well as probation or parole officers concerned in a case. This exchange of information among prosecutor, police, and probation/parole aids in decisionmaking on case management and disposition and has resulted in the growth of mutual cooperation and respect that has had a significant impact on the handling of juvenile SHO/DI cases.
