We are working to strengthen and improve your law enforcement rights in California.
On May 7 and 8, the law enforcement community gathered in Sacramento for the 41st annual California Peace Officers’ Memorial Ceremony. Always a somber occasion, this year’s event took on added significance and poignancy with the addition of 15 names to the monument.
PORAC’s annual Legislative Day was held at the State Capitol immediately after the Memorial Ceremony. The ceremony provides important context about the realities of enforcing the law in our state, generating meaningful dialogue about legislative issues affecting public safety.
Bail reform is expected to be in the center ring of the criminal justice reform battles this legislative session. In April, the Assembly Public Safety Committee hearing overflowed into the halls of the Capitol. The crowd was what you would imagine: social justice organizations, law enforcement and an impressive number of bail bond agents, led by celebrity bounty hunters Duane “Dog” and Beth Chapman.
