Long-Awaited Report by Little Hoover Commission Seeks Better Data Collections on Retail Theft

Davis Vanguard, by David Greenwald, July 12, 2024

Sacramento, CA – The Little Hoover Commission conducted an examination of California’s response to retail theft following a request by 66 members of the state legislature.

A big finding is: “The state should prioritize data collection and collaboration with research institutions as it seeks to understand and combat retail theft in the long term,” the Little Hoover Commission concluded in a new report, Retail Theft: A Data Driven Response for California.

Two crime measures, one ballot. What could go wrong?

Politico, By Emily Schultheis and Will Mccarthy, 07/01/2024

SEEING DOUBLE — Californians will most likely cast votes in November on two separate crime-fighting initiatives: the proposal backed by prosecutors and big-box retailers that qualified for the ballot last week, and a counter-measure from Gov. Gavin Newsom and Democratic leaders making its way through the Legislature this week.

Both include changes to charging and sentencing rules around drugs and retail theft, but Newsom’s initiative goes further in terms of gamesmanship. Its drafters have included a provision stating it would nullify the prosecutors’ crime initiative if both measures pass and Newsom’s receives more votes, setting up an unlikely horse race between two questions on the same ballot.

Ballot measure madness: How California lawmakers are scrambling the November list

CalMatters, By Alexei Koseff, Jun 28, 2024
A flurry of dealmaking, largely brokered by the office of Gov. Gavin Newsom, is radically transforming the November ballot at the last minute, with agreements to withdraw a record number of measures before a key deadline this week and potentially even more changes yet to come next week.

Against a backdrop of Democratic anxiety over voter turnout and campaign resources for the November election — where California could play a crucial role in helping Democrats win back control of the U.S. House — Newsom and legislative leaders have maneuvered to reshape the swath of issues that voters will decide this fall.

The LARRP Policy and Advocacy Committee seeks to be a resource to inform and mobilize the reentry community around critical reentry policy issues and leverage the expertise of practitioners and impacted people into the policy making process.

The Committee will develop and advocate for the passage and implementation of legislative and administrative policies that improve opportunities for formerly incarcerated or convicted people, their families and communities, and the community-based agencies that serve them.

Committee work will be guided and prioritized by 3 questions:

  • Will it have a direct impact on the lives of impacted people?
  • Does it address reentry systems or services?
  • Does it reduce racial discrimination in the criminal legal system?
