EPISODE DESCRIPTION

Proposition 6 will be on the November 2008 ballot. If passed, the initiative would increase funding by nearly sixty-one percent for various law enforcement activities including gang intervention, detention, probation, narcotics enforcement, education, prevention and rehabilitation. The proposition will require a minimum of $965,000,000 each year to be allocated from the state general fund for police, sheriffs, district attorneys, adult probation, jails and juvenile probation facilities.

Opponents believe Proposition 6 will lock-in taxpayer money to fund failed, "get-tough" policies and programs. The initiative earmarks state general fund dollars which would mean less money for education, senior services, and heath care. Proposition 6 will drain communities of much-needed resources and will make neighborhoods and streets less safe.

Proponents believe Proposition 6 is an anti-gang and crime reduction measure that will increase public safety and bring greater efficiency and accountability to programs and agencies that spend taxpayer money. Funding will be ensured for local police, sheriff, district attorneys and probation officers while creating tougher punishment for violent and gang crimes.
