The Blueprint for Shared Safety strategic plan will be adopted by Santa Cruz County Community Corrections Partnership as a framework of principles and practices that community leaders can use to lead shared safety strategies. By shifting the focus from the traditional criminal justice system to investments that can truly make our communities safer, the Blueprint aims to re-envision public safety together. The Community Corrections Partnership Community Education and Engagement Workgroup (CCP CEEW) has conducted data analysis to identify the key assets and gaps in Santa Cruz County. After identifying the key assets and gaps there were recommendation review sessions that included stakeholders, direct service providers, and survivors of crime, to prioritize draft recommendations. The recommendations will then inform the CCP CEEW on how to move forward and will be included in a report. The final report will be presented to the Community Corrections Partnership Executive Committee and eventually, the Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors.
