Corrections launches realignment website

100625 CDCR logo.JPGThe California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation launched a new website today that will keep track of the state's shift of some prison and parole obligations to local governments.

The "2011 Public Safety Realignment" site is intended to answer questions that employees, government officials and the public might have about Assembly Bills 109 and 117, Budget Committee measures that cut CDCR costs by handing over responsibilities for things like juvenile incarceration to local entities.

The site has information about "funding, the local planning process, post-release community supervision, parole revocations, and related legislation affecting California's prison population," a CDCR press release says, along with how the moves will impact jobs and layoffs.
