Featured panelists include Secretary Scott Kernan, California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation; Stephen Walker, Chief of Governmental Affairs for California Correctional Peace Ofﬁcers Association; Robert T. Guthrie, Arcadia Police Chief and Los Angeles County Police Chief’s Association; and Daniel Torres, reintegration specialist for the Flintridge Center. Monrovia City Manager Oliver Chi and L.A.

Proposition 47 and Proposition 57 were ballot initiatives that reformed various criminal justice statutes once passed by California voters. Assembly Bill 109, the Public Safety Realignment Act, was enacted in 2011 to reduce the number of inmates in the state’s prisons, as ordered by a U.S. Supreme Court decision.
The Monrovia Community Center is located at 119 W. Palm Ave. Monrovia CA, 91016. To RSVP for this event email Assemblymember.Holden@ Assembly.ca.gov.
