Community Advisory Board

The Community Advisory Board (CAB) on Public Safety Realignment was established by the Community Corrections Partnership (CCP) Executive Committee in December 2012 to provide input on community needs; assess implementation of the realignment plan; review data on realignment outcomes; advise the CCP on community engagement strategies; offer recommendations for ongoing realignment planning; advise County agencies regarding programs for implementation in the County; and encourage outcomes that are consistent with the County’s Reentry Strategic Plan.

The Community Advisory Board includes 12 voting members and three alternate members with expertise in adult education within a correctional setting, domestic violence prevention, workforce development, behavioral health issues, post-release reentry services, services for reentering women, criminal and drug court, and law and policy related to issues of the formerly incarcerated and crime survivors. All CAB members either live or work in Contra Costa County.

The Community Advisory Board meets on the second Thursday of the month from 10 A.M. to 12 P.M. at the Probation Department (50 Douglas Drive, Second Floor, Martinez, CA).

In addition, CAB has the following Subcommittees:

  • Outreach & Community Engagement Subcommittee
  • Policy & Budget Subcommittee
  • Programs & Services Subcommittee
