ALTO Sponsored Podcast: The Unintended Consequences of California’s Proposition 47 on Retail Theft
ALTO US has partnered with LP Magazine to sponsor an EyeOnLP podcast with a panel of experts discussing California’s Proposition 47 and its impact on retail theft. This podcast is featured in the December 2017 edition of LPM Online, LP Magazine’s bi-monthly digital magazine. This edition features content focused on Organized Retail Crime (ORC).
In November of 2014 California voters passed an historic measure that was intended to reduce crowding in the state’s overwhelmed prisons, save money, and reduce punishments for more than 1 million non-violent criminal offenders. The new law, known as Proposition 47, is saving the state prison system tens of millions of dollars, according to state estimates. By recategorizing certain non-violent offenses such as drug and property offenses as misdemeanors rather than felonies—as they had previously been categorized—the new law also affects future convictions and allows for people currently incarcerated for crimes covered to petition for re-sentencing.
In discussing the impact of this legislation, the team at ALTO has brought together a panel of subject matter experts, all of whom have been intimately involved in managing the interests of retailers and the community in general in the aftermath of this legislation.
