SANTAANA— Gov. Jerry Brown based hisrecent overhaul of the state corrections sys-tem in part on the idea that having those con-victed of lower-level crimes supervised bycounty probation officers instead of stateparole agents when they are released wouldhelp them stay clean, find jobs and avoidcommitting new crimes.Acornerstone of the law’s success is hous-ing, yet county probation officers through-out the state say homelessness continues toundermine their ability to help ex-cons reha-bilitate, get drug treatment and find jobs.Some California counties report that up toone in five of the parolees they superviseunder the governor’s realignment law ishomeless.“You’ve got somebody and ... they’regang-involved, you want to get them inclasses, but they live under a bridge,” saidAndrew Davis, an analyst with the Santa CruzCounty Probation Department. “They’re notgoing to show up; they don’t know what dayof the week it is.”Counties across the state are dealing withthe problem in different ways. Many are try-ing a patchwork of solutions as they adapt.In Marin County, probation officers some-times pick homeless parolees up at theprison gates and pay for motel rooms untilthey can find a bed. Santa Cruz County hascontracted with local homeless shelters, amove that stirred controversy last year.Homeless parolees in Riverside County arerequired to check in at an electronic kiosk andhave their photo taken daily. In San DiegoCounty, where nearly 400 former prisoninmates are reporting as homeless, there’s aplan to spend $3 million to add 150 shelterbeds. Parolees who say they are homelessmust check in weekly with probation.In Los Angeles County, where 758 con-victs released under realignment say theyhave no permanent address, county attorneysare considering whether being homelesscould be classified as an automatic violationof a parolee’s terms of release. That’s in partbecause many counties are finding that for-mer inmates will claim homelessness toavoid close supervision.Los Angeles has spent more than $6.5 mil-lion on housing for convicts who would havepreviously been the responsibility of stateparole.Counties say the number of lower-leveloffenders — defined as those who have com-mitted crimes that are non-serious, non-sexu-al and non-violent — who are homeless upontheir release has not necessarily changedsince the realignment law took effect in2011. State officials are still tallying thenumber.The difference is that previously, thesefelons were the state’s responsibility.Counties are not strangers to dealing withhomeless probationers, but now the numbershave increased.
