Public Safety Realignment (AB109)

Chief Marlon Washington, Probation


Assembly Bill 109 is a corrections reform legislation that "realigns" responsibility for offenders who have historically been supervised by the State of California's Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to county probation departments.  The Marin County Probation Department manages this significant task through intensive community-based supervision of offenders released from prison, in conjunction with local treatment and service providers.

Coordination of Probation Enforcement (COPE)

The main focus of the Unit is to monitor high risk narcotics violators who have been placed on probation rather than serving time in custody. The goal of the COPE unit is to ensure that those individuals who have been granted the privilege of probation are leading law abiding lives.
