          SOURCE:    Various


          DIGEST:  This bill makes technical and corrective changes to  
          various code sections relating generally to criminal justice  
          laws, as specified. 


          ANALYSIS:   


          Existing law:

          1)Provides that when a person is arrested without a warrant, the  
            person must be taken before the nearest accessible magistrate  
            with certain exceptions. (Penal Code  849)

          2)Provides that when a person is arrested and taken into  
            custody, that person may be subjected to patdown searches,

                                                                    Page  2


            metal detector searches and thorough clothing searches in  
            order to discover and retrieve concealed weapons and  
            contraband substance prior to being placed in a booking cell.  
            (Penal Code  4030)

          3)Establishes, under the Interstate Compact for Juveniles (ICJ),  
            which sunsets on January 1, 2016, an interstate commission of  
            the compacting states to, among other things, oversee,  
            supervise, and coordinate the interstate movement of  
            juveniles.

          This bill:

          1)Adds an exception for a person arrested for a DUI that needs  
            to be taken for medical treatment first.

          2)Allows the use of body scanners when a person is taken into  
            custody.

          3)Deletes the ICJ sunset date.

          4)Makes additional technical changes to ICJ.

          Background


          This is the annual Senate Committee on Public Safety omnibus  
          bill.  In past years, the omnibus bill has been introduced by  
          all members of the Committee on Public Safety.  This bill is  
          similar to the ones introduced as Committee bills in the past in  
          that it has been introduced with the following understanding:

           The bill's provisions make only technical or minor changes to  
            the law; and
           There is no opposition by any member of the Legislature or  
            recognized group to the proposal.

          This procedure has allowed for introduction of fewer minor bills  
          and has saved the Legislature time and expense over the years.

          FISCAL EFFECT:   Appropriation:    No          Fiscal  
          Com.:YesLocal:   No

          According to the Senate Appropriations Committee:







                                                                     SB 795  
                                                                    Page  3



           Removal of ICJ sunset:  Annual dues of $37,000 (General Fund).  
             Unknown, potential future cost pressure (General Fund) for  
            ongoing ICJ compliance.

           Body scanner authorization:  Significant future cost pressure  
            (Local/State) to the extent the authorization for the use of  
            body scanners results in future funding for equipment and  
            training.
