Standing Committee on Gang Issues
The Standing Committee on Gang Issues was formed to support the Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC) in addressing its legislative mandates by providing thoughtful recommendations on various gang-related policy issues facing the Board. This Committee is currently inactive.
- Develop recommendations for how the BSCC will assume the duties, obligations, powers and authority formerly exercised by the Office of Gang and Youth Violence Policy (OGYVP).
- Develop recommendations for administering the California Gang Reduction, Intervention and Prevention (CalGRIP) Program Request for Proposals (RFP), process.
Develop recommendation to implement the provisions of Assembly Bill 526, which requires the BSCC to:
- Move toward a unified single delinquency intervention and prevention grant application process for grant programs with the same or similar program purpose,
- Incentivize comprehensive regional partnerships, and
- By January 1, 2014, develop funding allocation policies that ensure that within three years no less than 70 percent of funding for “gang and youth violence suppression, intervention, and prevention programs and strategies is used in programs that utilize promising and proven evidence-based principles and practices.”
To meet its responsibilities the committee will:
- Meet on a quarterly basis, if necessary.
- Conduct its meetings consistent with the Bagley-Keene Open Meeting Act.
- Consider items consistent with direction given by the BSCC Board.
- Develop recommendations consistent with the Board’s mission and responsibilities.
- At the conclusion of each meeting, summarize any meeting recommendations to be presented to the Board.
