Groups Fight For State Funding For AB 109 Probationers And Parolees

Los Angeles police Chief Charlie Beck has released a report that says the state's prison realignment program, AB 109, costs the LAPD over $18 million a year. Under AB 109, the County has taken over probation populations previously supervised by the state. Los Angeles police officers have been working with the County to conduct compliance checks among former prisoners. And, Beck says his department is due some of the money the state pays to L.A. County to do the job. Pacifica's Dan Fritz reports.
