California’s Probation and Parole Reform Successes
California Reform Webinar: California has passed legislation that addresses several of EXiT’s policy aims, including shortening supervision terms (both at sentencing and via earned time credits), and eliminating supervision fees. This public-facing webinar will highlight those legislative efforts, discuss why such reforms are necessary, and share plans for implementation and further reform.
California has recently considered and/or passed several measures that reform probation and parole, including limiting supervision terms for both probation and parole, expanding earned time credits, and eliminating supervision fees. This webinar will highlight these legislative efforts, discuss why such reforms are necessary, and share plans for implementation and further reform.
This webinar is hosted by the Columbia University Justice Lab in conjunction with EXiT: Executives Transforming Probation and Parole. EXiT is a network of 90 current and former probation and parole executives who have committed to making supervision smaller, less punitive, and more hopeful, equitable, and restorative. California’s reforms align with several of EXiT’s policy aims.
