Introduced by Assembly Member Travis Allen

An act relating to gang databases.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1409, as introduced, Travis Allen. Gang databases.
Existing law, the California Street Terrorism Enforcement and Prevention Act (act) imposes specified punishments for certain crimes committed for the benefit of, at the direction of, or in association with, a criminal street gang, as specified. The act authorizes injunctions against specified gang activity, as provided. The act allows for the keeping of a shared gang database, defined as having various attributes, including, among others, that the database contains personal, identifying information in which a person may be designated as a suspected gang member, associate, or affiliate, or for which entry of a person in the database reflects a designation of that person as a suspected gang member, associate, or affiliate.
This bill would require the California Department of Justice to send a copy of all information it has access to pursuant to a shared gang database to the United States Department of Justice.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 The California Department of Justice shall send a copy of all information it has access to pursuant to a shared gang database, as defined in Section 186.34 of the Penal Code, to the United States Department of Justice.
