Cal State Document
The Assembly Office of Research has been studying the appropriateness, costs, and results of punishments available under California law and comparing them to other possible sanctions which could be more effective and/or less costly. A previous report, "The Costs and Benefits of Prison Sentences for Burglars," issued in February 1984, examined the costs and benefits of recent sentencing laws for the crime of burglary. This report evaluates the California Community Crime Resistance Program and makes recommendations for continuing the program, which is scheduled to terminate in January 1986. The report also suggests possible improvements in the program.
