Community Corrections Partnership

The CCP is chaired by the Chief Probation Officer and is required to develop and recommend to the Board of Supervisors an implementation plan for 2011 public safety realignment.  It is a multi-disciplinary team established in Penal Code 1230 as a result of the Realignment Act of 2011.
 

The executive committee includes the Chief Probation Officer, Napa Chief of Police, Sheriff, District Attorney, Public Defender, Presiding Judge, or designee and the Director of Health and Human Services.  The full membership is a larger group of criminal justice stakeholders. The CCP meets monthly to be able to review and update the plan as needed.

  • Transfers responsibility for supervising some lower-level inmates and those returning from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to counties.  
  • Began Oct. 1, 2011.

 Napa County's Plan: Principles and Objectives

Our plan is governed by the primary responsibility of criminal justice agencies: to protect the community, provide due process to the accused and punish those who deserve it.  Adoption of alternatives to incarceration will be governed by the following criteria:

1. Safety.  Assure that the proposed program or policy maintains sufficient control over defendants and offenders to minimize risk to the community when they are not confined.

2. Punishment.  Assure that the proposal is consistent with the deterrent and retributive functions of law enforcement, both for participants and for the public at large.

3. Recidivism.  Implement programs or policy shown to produce a reduction in recidivism.  Recidivism is measured by returns to incarceration for supervision violations and failures

to appear as well as by the commission of new offenses. 

4. Cost.  Determine what investment is required by the County to establish a program and then to maintain it.  Assure that there is evidence that enough people would qualify for or be referred to the program to justify it.

Meetings are held the first Thursday of the month at 2:00 p.m.
