Sheriff’s oppose Proposition 47

Friday, Oct. 24, 2014 — Dean F. Growdon, Lassen County sheriff-coroner, announced he has joined with the other 57 California sheriff’s in opposition of Proposition 47.  

“Despite being referred to as the ‘Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act’ this measure will make our schools and neighborhoods less safe. Many crimes that impact our communities will be reduced from felonies to misdemeanors, and nearly 10,000 felony offenders will be eligible for early release or re-sentencing to our local county jails.

It is important that crimes including firearms theft, identity theft, possession of “date rape” drugs and possession of dangerous drugs including methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin continue to carry the potential of a felony conviction. Without the ability to arrest, prosecute, or sentence these crimes as felonies, offenders can commit these crimes time after time and never face more serious consequences for their criminal conduct.
