The CCP is in charge of managing the state's Assembly Bill 109 Inmate Realignment program at the county level. The committee, comprised of local criminal justice leaders, has been hampered by a revolving door of leadership since last spring. The committee admitted some of its planning and effectiveness has suffered as a result. At the Wednesday, Feb. 19, meeting in Quincy, Daniel Prince was introduced as the partnership's third chairman in less than a year. Prince, formerly a superintendent for the Nevada County Juvenile Hall, is the county's newest acting chief probation officer. By law, the head of the probation department chairs the committee. Prince replaces Doug Carver, who stepped down as acting chief probation officer and CCP chairman Jan. 31. Carver was precluded from working any longer because the terms of his public service retirement limit the number of hours he can work. Carver stepped in for Chief Probation Officer Sharon Reinert in June 2013. Reinert is on an extended excused absence. Prince barely had time to warm his chair before hearing several requests and critiques from community partners, including the county auditor and a supervisor. Victoria Metca!f, coordinator of the county's literacy program, said her program desperately needs money. She again asked the CCP for help. "I put in a funding request in July, and I'm still waiting to hear when there might be a decision," Metcalf said. "I'm in danger of running out of funding to meet the needs of at least one employee who works in the jail for the programs. I would like for you to decide on something soon." Metcalfadded that she has been getting mixed signals from the CCP about the funding-request procedure. Prince said establishing a process for considering funding requests would be one of his top priorities. He told Metcalf he would review her request and put it on the agenda for the CCP's next meeting March 26. For the first time in months, committee members were able to see just how much money they had to "1 put in a funding request in July, and I'm stiff waiting to hear when there might be a decision."

Jail commander Chad Hermann said much of the confusion stems from having several CCP chairpeople during the past year. "The ball gets rolling and then somebody new comes in, which has caused an absolute storm," he said. Supervisor Lori Simpson told the CCP committee that she would like to see its 2014 plan completed and made public as soon as possible. "I know everyone is short-handed: the sheriff, the DA, probation. But it seems sort of late to be doing this plan. It's something we need to work on in the future," Simpson said. The supervisor said she is willing to help the committee in any way she can. "I can even do the budget," she said, smiling. "What's your number?" Committee Secretary Monica Richardson quipped, inspiring spontaneous laughter in the room. "You know where to fmd me," Simpson quickly responded. Committee member Doug Prouty said having a printed budget for the board to review at each meeting was essential. "Requests for funding seem to be coming up on a monthly basis," Prouty said. "We need to have this (budget) prepared for each of our meetings so we can address the requests." Prouty suggested establishing a standard procedure for funding requests to be submitted and evaluated. "What I've just heard right now is music to my ears," said Dennis Thibeault, executive director of the Plumas County Resource Center. "Because those of you who were here at the last meeting (know) I was very disappointed at the lack of policy and procedures. And this sounds like a move in the right direction." Prince tried to assure the partners that he would have some answers, ideas and a plan for the next meeting.
