CA: 60 Organizations Jointly Request Significant Parole and Probation Changes During Pandemic


A group of 60 organizations, including ACSOL, are jointly requesting that parole and probation agencies in California modify existing supervision conditions, policies and practices to align with public health recommendations in order to protect the lives of more than 400,000 people under their supervision.  Included in the request is the end of in-person registration.

“ACSOL and its members need to share the list of requests with local county government officials, including county boards of supervisor, county probation departments and local sheriff’s departments,” stated ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci.  “This can be done using social media as well as by phone and email.”

Root & Rebound, a non-profit organization, is leading this effort.  Additional information regarding the non-profit as well as this effort can be found at

Hm, how does this play out with ab 433 “probation notice to victim” that was signed by Newsom in October last year?

A bill that oddly enough seemed rushed since its only purpose it seems is to add additional provisions to Marsy’s law which was passed in 2008…yet nobody seemed to need these provisions before…? Could it be some attempt to keep Marsy’s law defendants from revealing the truth of Marsy’s laws’ unconstitutionality and keep tieing them up in probation?

Hey these sixty organizations may help our Org. in the future! Even though most are for incarcerated and Parole/Probation Inmates released. But good to see! With more in numbers the Gov. himself may see with the assist of his aides and of course CASOMB and Root & Rebound helping again! Glad we’re all together in this.
Thanks for sharing this power that may just make a change before paying for more suits.

Excuse me, “CASOMB helping again?” CASOMB is not a signatory in that letter. In fact, CASOMB is a corrupt government entity that supports nothing but “scientific” hogwash and draconian laws cleverly dressed up as new and improved. CASOMB will continue to hurt people, especially under the light of its false perception of credibility/independence.

It’s troubling that so many people give CASOMB such undeserved credit.

Nonetheless, I am glad that the signatories to this letter — excluding CASOMB — stood up for everyone that this letter helps. Thank you to Janice, Chance, and the rest of this team.

Let’s not forget about all the people under federal supervision. This is a great county and state effort that should be expanded to the federal system as well. Including the stopping of in person registration under federal law.

Yes ab its been a lot of years since I’ve heard comments from Janice’s group, but whoever came up with that idea has something their. I have never lived in a Commonwealth state before and their are ssome strange laws believe me. Each staste is different with rules, regulations, stipulations, or whatever. Time to get a good pitchman involved in a different unique way or whos’ being the barker for relief in many of these sex offender ordeals. Even woman against the registry is unique or mothers against drunk drivers. Even the pro’s and cons about abortion can be a… Read more »

@dph its a good point for everyone to understand. I’m sure that is a positive way for all.

While I applaud the efforts to end the in person registering during this pandemic, my frustration seems to stem from the opposite as my in person sex offender treatment/weekly class has been suspended/cancelled/postponed. I understand the current crisis and why we dont meet (although the group size was under the 10 person cdc guidelines). I was ok with missing one or two weeks, but now it is looking like it will be closer to 8-10 weeks. It is my understanding that this weekly class is something that must be completed for all registrant parolee/probationers before being released from parole. I… Read more »
