DISPATCHER AWARENESS:  REFUGEE INTEGRATION NOW ON THE LEARNING PORTAL

The refugee population in California is on the rise and poses unique challenges for law enforcement communication centers, including language barriers, cultural differences, and resource needs.  To address these challenges and help ensure members of the refugee community have access to law enforcement services, the Dispatcher Awareness:  Refugee Integration course was developed.  This is a “course-in-a-box,” available for downloading from the Learning Portal as a resource for Public Safety Dispatcher Training (PSDT).

Curriculum includes a facilitation guide, PowerPoint, and handouts.  To meet regional and/or agency needs, the course is in a variable format for either four or eight hours of instruction.  It is the responsibility of the presenter to certify the course for Continuing Professional Training (CPT) credit.

For additional information on the Dispatcher Awareness:  Refugee Integration course, please contact Special Consultant Rosanna McKinney at (916) 227-3897.

Existing law provides that a sheriff’s or police security officer is a public officer whose duties are limited to the physical security of properties owned, operated, controlled, or administered by the county or city, or any municipality or special district contracting for police services from the county or city, and other necessary duties, as specified.

The bill would authorize the court to order that information be kept confidential if the court expressly finds that, among other things, the minor’s right to privacy overcomes the right of public access to the information and no less restrictive means exist to protect the minor’s privacy. If the request is granted, the bill would prohibit that information from becoming part of the public file in that proceeding or any other civil proceeding. The bill would make it a contempt of court to disclose or misuse the confidential information and would require the notice served on the respondent to identify the specific information that is confidential and the penalty for disclosure or misuse of that information.

The bill would instead make the intentional transmission of an infectious or communicable disease, as defined, a misdemeanor, if certain circumstances apply, including that the defendant knows he or she is afflicted with the disease, that the defendant acts with the specific intent to transmit the disease to another person, that the defendant engages in conduct that poses a substantial risk of transmission, as defined, and that the defendant transmits the disease to the other person. The bill would impose various requirements upon the court in order to prevent the public disclosure of the identifying characteristics, as defined, of the complainant and the defendant. By creating a new crime, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.

Evidentiary privileges: domestic violence counselor-victim privilege.

Existing law relating to legal proceedings generally provides that a person does not have a privilege to refuse to disclose any matter or produce any writing, object, or other thing. However, a victim of domestic violence has a privilege to refuse to disclose, and to prevent another from disclosing, a confidential communication between the victim and a domestic violence counselor. Existing law requires the domestic violence counselor who received or made a communication subject to this privilege to claim the privilege whenever he or she is present when the communication is sought to be disclosed. Existing law defines “domestic violence counselor” to mean a specified person who is employed at a domestic violence victim service organization. Existing law defines “domestic violence victim service organization” to mean a nongovernmental organization or entity that provides shelter, programs, or services to victims of domestic violence and their children, as specified. This bill would expand the definition “domestic violence victim service organization” to include a public or private institution of higher education, as specified, thereby expanding the scope of the privilege.

Public records: disclosure on Internet Websites.

The California Public Records Act generally requires every state and local agency to make its public records available for inspection by a member of the public, unless the public record is specifically exempted from disclosure. The act further requires every state and local agency to duplicate discloseable public records, either on paper or in an electronic format, if so requested by a member of the public and he or she has paid certain costs of the duplication. The act specifically requires the California Environmental Protection Agency and certain entities within that agency to post its final enforcement orders on its Internet Websites, if the final enforcement order is a public record that is not exempt from disclosure. This bill would require, on and after July 1, 2018, each state and local law enforcement agency to post on its Internet Website, in a text searchable format, all of its manuals and policies not exempt from disclosure pursuant to the act.

Custodial interrogation: juveniles.

Existing law authorizes a peace officer to take a minor into temporary custody when that officer has reasonable cause to believe that the minor has committed a crime or violated an order of the juvenile court. In these circumstances, existing law requires the peace officer to advise the minor that anything he or she says can be used against him or her, that he or she has the right to remain silent, that he or she has a right to have counsel present during any interrogation, and that he or she has a right to have counsel appointed if he or she is unable to afford counsel. This bill would require that a youth under 18 years of age consult with legal counsel in person, by telephone, or by video conference prior to a custodial interrogation and before waiving any of the above-specified rights. The bill would provide that consultation with legal counsel cannot be waived. The bill would require the court to consider the effect of the failure to comply with the above-specified requirement in adjudicating the admissibility of statements of a youth under 18 years of age made during or after a custodial interrogation. The bill also clarifies that these provisions do not apply to the admissibility of statements of a youth under 18 years of age if certain criteria are met.

Firearms.

Existing law, subject to exceptions, prohibits a person from making more than one application to purchase a handgun within any 30-day period. Violation of that prohibition is a crime. Existing law prohibits a firearms dealer from delivering a handgun to a person whenever the dealer is notified by the Department of Justice that within the preceding 30-day period the purchaser has made another application to purchase a handgun that does not fall within an exception to the 30-day prohibition. A violation of that delivery prohibition by the dealer is a crime. This bill would make the 30-day prohibition and the dealer delivery prohibition described above applicable to all types of firearms. The bill would also except from that prohibition the purchase of a firearm, other than a handgun, by a person who possesses a valid, unexpired hunting license, and the acquisition of a firearm, other than a handgun, at specified charity fundraising events. The bill would make additional conforming changes and technical, nonsubstantive changes.

Public safety: omnibus.

Existing law provides that, in a criminal action, expert testimony is admissible by either the prosecution or the defense regarding the effects of human trafficking on human trafficking victims. Existing law defines the term “human trafficking” pursuant to a specified provision of the Penal Code. This bill would clarify that the term “human trafficking victim” is defined as a victim of an offense as described in that provision of the Penal Code. Existing law, the End of Life Option Act, authorizes an adult who meets certain qualifications, and who has been determined by his or her attending physician to be suffering from a terminal disease, as defined, to make a request for a drug prescribed pursuant to these provisions for the purpose of ending his or her life. Existing law makes a violation of certain provisions of the act a felony, as specified, and provides that the application of those penalties does not preclude the application of any other criminal penalties under any other law for conduct inconsistent with the provisions of that section. This bill would clarify that the application of those penalties does not preclude the application of any other criminal penalties for conduct inconsistent with the act. Existing law provides that it is a crime, punishable by a fine or imprisonment in county jail, as specified, for any person to possess specified controlled substances, unless upon the prescription of a physician, dentist, podiatrist, or veterinarian licensed to practice in this state. Existing law creates an exemption from the prohibitions for possession of those controlled substances by a person other than the prescription holder if the possession of the controlled substance is at the direction or with the express authorization of the prescription holder, as specified. Existing law, as amended by the Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act (Proposition 47), an initiative measure approved by the voters at the November 4, 2014, statewide general election, generally makes the possession of those controlled substances a misdemeanor, as specified.
