          SUMMARY:


          This bill includes correctional officers who are employed by a  
          city or county, in facilities that have arranged to house  
          inmates in the custody of the California Department of  
          Corrections and Rehabilitation and juveniles in the custody of  
          the Division of Juvenile Justice, within the Peace Officer Bill  
          of Rights. (POBOR).

                                                                    Page  2





          Unknown, additional reimbursable state mandated costs; in excess  
          of $1 million.  Although, prior POBOR mandate reimbursements,  
          POBOR I and POBOR II, have been deferred for several years, this  
          POBOR mandate will be added to the over $60 million owed.  


          COMMENTS:


          Background.  The Peace Officers Bill of Rights (POBOR) provides  
          peace officers with procedural protections relating to  
          investigation and interrogations of peace officers,  
          self-incrimination, privacy, polygraph exams, searches,  
          personnel files, and administrative appeals.  When the  
          Legislature enacted POBOR in 1976 it found and declared "that  
          the rights and protections provided to peace officers under this  
          chapter constitute a matter of statewide concern."


          Deputy sheriffs, in specified counties, employed to perform  
          duties exclusively related to custodial assignments involving  
          the custody, care, supervision, security, movement, and  
          transportation of inmates are covered by POBOR.  


          Legislation in 2012, created a new classification of Correction  
          Officer for the newly-created Modified Community Correctional  
          Facilities.  However, community corrections officers were not  
          included within POBOR at the time.  


          Purpose.  This bill will provide community correctional officers  
          the same protections other correctional officers currently have.
