(1)Existing law requires each sheriff or police chief executive to submit descriptions of serialized property, or nonserialized property that has been uniquely inscribed, which has been reported stolen, lost, or found directly into the appropriate Department of Justice automated property system for firearms, stolen bicycles, stolen vehicles, or other property. Existing law requires that information about a firearm entered into the automated system for firearms remain in the system until the reported firearm has been found. Existing law requires the Department of Justice to implement an electronic system to receive comprehensive tracing information from each local law enforcement agency and to forward the information to the National Tracing Center. This bill would require every person, with exceptions, to report the theft or loss of a firearm he or she owns or possesses to a local law enforcement agency in the jurisdiction in which the theft or loss occurred within 5 days of the time he or she knew or reasonably should have known that the firearm had been stolen or lost, and requires every person who has reported a firearm lost or stolen to notify the local law enforcement agency within 48 hours if the firearm is subsequently recovered. The bill would make a violation of these provisions an infraction punishable by a fine not to exceed $100 for a first offense, an infraction punishable by a fine not to exceed $1,000 for a 2nd offense, and a misdemeanor, punishable by imprisonment in a county jail not exceeding 6 months, or by a fine not to exceed $1,000, or both that fine and imprisonment, for a 3rd or subsequent offense. The bill would make it an infraction for any person to make a report to a local law enforcement agency that a firearm has been lost or stolen, knowing the report to be false. The bill would not preclude or preempt a local ordinance that imposes additional penalties or requirements in regard to reporting the theft or loss of a firearm. By creating new crimes, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program. The bill would require every sheriff or police chief to submit a description of each firearm that has been reported lost or stolen directly to the Department of Justice Automated Firearms System. By imposing new duties on local agencies, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.

(2)Existing law prohibits a person from making an application to purchase more than one handgun within any 30-day period. Existing law makes an exception for the replacement of a handgun when the person’s handgun was lost or stolen and the person reported the firearm lost or stolen prior to the completion of the application to purchase. This bill would instead make the exception for the replacement of a lost or stolen handgun applicable when the person has reported the handgun lost or stolen pursuant to the provisions of this bill. (3)The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement. This bill would provide that with regard to certain mandates no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason. With regard to any other mandates, this bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs so mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.

The act requires a community facilities district formed after January 1, 1992, to prepare, if requested by a person who resides in or owns property in the district and within 120 days after the last day of each fiscal year, a separate document titled an “Annual Report.” The act requires a legislative body to report specific information regarding the sale of bonds to the California Debt and Investment Advisory Commission (CDIAC). Other existing law requires each county, city, and special district that assesses a parcel tax to provide specific information to the Controller in connection with reports compiled and published by the Controller on the financial transactions of counties, cities, and special districts. This bill would require a legislative body that has an Internet Web site, within 7 months after the last day of each fiscal year of the district, to display prominently on its Internet Web site a copy of that annual report, if requested, a copy of the report to CDIAC, and a copy of the report to the Controller.

Existing law subjects any person under 18 years of age who commits a crime to the jurisdiction of the juvenile court, which may adjudge that person to be a ward of the court, except as specified. Existing law authorizes a probation officer, in certain circumstances, to delineate a specific program of supervision of a minor who is alleged to have committed a crime in lieu of requesting that the prosecuting attorney file a petition to declare the minor a ward of the juvenile court. Existing law makes a minor ineligible for this program of supervision if he or she has previously participated in a program of supervision. Existing law makes it a misdemeanor for a person to solicit or engage in any act of prostitution or to loiter in a public place in a manner and under circumstances manifesting the purpose and with the intent to commit prostitution. This bill would require the probation officer, in a case in which a minor is alleged to have committed those prostitution-related offenses, to delineate a specific program of supervision for the minor in lieu of requesting that the prosecuting attorney file a petition to have the minor declared a ward of the juvenile court. The bill would also allow these minors to participate in a program of supervision even if they have previously participated in a program of supervision. By increasing the duties of probation officers, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program. The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
