If you can be in Sacramento tomorrow - Tuesday, April 18th - please attend the Assembly Public Safety Committee hearing to speak out in support of AB 90 at the California State Capitol, Room 126, 8:30AM

ABOUT AB 90 - ACCURACY, FAIRNESS AND OVERSIGHT
OF SHARED GANG DATABASES

AB 90 will:

1. Provide law enforcement greater access to useful crime prevention and investigation tools by increasing the accuracy of shared gang databases.

2. Move oversight and administration of the CalGang Database to the State Department of Justice (DOJ).

3. Prohibit the sharing of CalGang with any federal agencies.

4. Place a moratorium on the use of CalGang (including accessing or adding to the database) until the concerns raised by the state audit (released in August, 2016) are resolved.

5. Ensure that a two-year automatic purge of CalGang will be implemented for individuals who do not have contact with law enforcement leading to the updating of their designation.

6. Require that law enforcement in custodial settings follow California law when they participate in shared gang databases.

7. Make small, but important language changes to clean up the law as recommended by California State Judicial Council, based on their experiences in the implementation of SB 458 and AB 2298. (California’s Judicial Council is the policymaking body of the California courts, the largest court system in the world.)

Thank you!!
