USE OF PROP 35
A law is only effective when properly enforced. CASRE is working to ensure the successful implementation and enforcement of the CASE Act through:
LAW ENFORCEMENT TRAINING
High quality law enforcement training is critical to any effort to combat human trafficking. Prop 35 requires that every law enforcement officer in the State of California who is assigned to field or investigative duties receive at least two hours of training on human trafficking.
We worked with the Commission on Police Officer Standards and Training (POST) to develop a DVD training. This new DVD that meets the mandates of Proposition 35 will be in the hands of every law enforcement agency in the POST program by June 15th. Click here for more information.
Prop 35 provides new tools to combat human trafficking to help not just peace officers, but also probation officers, prosecutors, judges, educators, and other first responders. CASRE will promote knowledge of Prop 35 in the broader community.
LEGAL DEFENSE OF THE LAW
CASRE is committed to defending the constitutionality of each and every component of Prop 35 (CASE Act). Currently, a lawsuit is underway specifically challenging the provision which requires sex offenders to disclose certain online accounts. CASRE’s lawyers are working side-by-side with the Attorney General’s Office to defend the constitutionality of this requirement. (Other provisions of Prop 35 are not impacted by this lawsuit.)
Anonymity on the internet has fueled the growth of human trafficking. Those who have a history of sexual exploitation must be monitored online as they are currently monitored offline.
