The suggestions made by DA Dudley are excellent. To some degree, we are all responsible for each other. As terrible as we all feel about Sandy Hook (and now the Fireman in New York-when will this stop!) I also think about Adam Lanza's mom and how she suffered up close and personal with her son's mental illness. (Understood that the guns were a huge and fatal mistake on her part.) We can not become callous to this and think that is all part of living in our society. This sucks and having armed good guys at school is not the answer either. Come get involved in some small way. Thanks DA. You are great and we are fortunate that you are where you are!
On It's All About Public Safety

I’d like to publically apologize for a statement that appeared in an article posted on the Santa Barbara Independent website today called, “Dr. Gus Frias Steps Down after Falling Down”. I’m embarrassed to admit that I provided inaccurate information about the Probation Department’s policies regarding the sharing of information. Prior to Dr. Frias’ appointment as the Coordinator of the Task Force, the Santa Barbara County Probation Department had developed and implemented a referral system to help juvenile probationers access services provided by non-profit agencies and other local organizations. This system allows for the smooth transfer of information about youth who have entered the probation system. Unfortunately my original comments inaccurately implied that information sharing system was only recently implemented.
The Probation Department has worked hard to develop a system that allows them to legally share information with other organizations. This has been challenging because they must accomplish this in a way that complies with state law. I applaud the results of this effort. Fran Forman, Executive Director, CAC
