The Chief Probation Officers of California (CPOC) concluded a two-day conference on October 19-20, 2017, A Decade of Progress: Probation’s Success with Juvenile Realignment, in Sacramento. The probation Chiefs and attendees heard from Governor Jerry Brown, Attorney General Xavier Becerra, among many others highlighting the success of the last decade in California juvenile justice and the continued efforts to maintain and enhance a localized, evidence-based approach to juveniles in the justice system.

CPOC is currently working to update all Continuum of Care Reform (CCR) related information and link them to this page for ease of reference. Please check back periodically to look for updates. If you come across something you think should be added, send it our way. We hope this webpage is useful as county probation departments continue their important work to implement CCR which became effective January 1, 2017.
