An Initiative for Public Safety
A brief overview of the four main components of the Reducing Crime and Keeping California Safe Act.
Non-violent Crimes in California
Detailed list of the appalling crimes currently not considered violent in California. The Keep California Safe initiative would re-classify as “violent” for purposes of early release.
