AB 109: From Prison to Probation
STC Certification Number: 5291-071589 (4 Hours)
STC Certification Number: 5291-057330 (8 Hours)
Due to the AB 109 “Realignment”, this is an excellent
course for all personnel working in Law Enforcement and specifically beneficial
for Probation Officers and Correctional Staff due to the large number of
Probationers and inmates who have been incarcerated in the State Prison system.
The course will provide an enhanced understanding of
the California Prison system, Prison politics, prison gangs, violence, and the
culture of inmates being released on Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS). The instructor will provide
an in-depth look at AB109 and its unintended consequences and the transition from prison to “community
supervision”. Deciphering prison tattoos/art
and the criminal mentality, which poses a real officer safety issue will also be covered.
An emphasis will be
placed on compliance searches, the law associated with them and surrounding legal issues. Additionally, each
student will receive a Compliance Search “Survival Guide”. The
Instructor has over 10 years of law enforcement experience and has conducted
hundreds of compliance searches on parolees and those on community supervision.
The instructor is a POST and ICI certified instructor, a recognized gang
expert, a published author and
has been instructing and updating this course over the past six years.
