SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – The California Police Chiefs Association says Proposition 47 isn’t working and they want it amended so more criminals get caught and prosecuted. Voters passed Prop 47 in November 2014. It changed a number of crimes from felonies to misdemeanors, including changing the dollar threshold for a theft to be considered a felony. The law used to consider theft a felony if the stolen merchandise was valued at 450 dollars or more. Under Prop 47 the threshold is now 950 dollars. According to the Keep California Safe initiative, which is sponsored by the California Police Chiefs Association, “As a result (of Prop 47), there has been an explosion of serial theft and an inability of law enforcement to prosecute these crimes effectively. Theft has increased by 12% to 25%, with losses of a billion dollars since the law was passed.” READ MORE: Grab And Dash Thefts On The Rise; Police Blame Law Meant To Make ‘Neighborhoods Safe’ … [Read more...] about California Police Chiefs Associations Wants To Amend Prop 47 To Reinstate Felonies For Theft
