County Board looks at public safety

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is expected today to vote on two public safety motions that could benefit the Santa Clarita Valley.

The motions seek to have funding approved for an enhanced juvenile justice system and for boating safety.

With regards to boat safety, supervisors are being asked to approve $60,000 in funding for boat safety from the California Department of Boating and Waterways.

The money would be divided between the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station and Marina del Rey and is earmarked for the purchase of a boat and scuba diving equipment.

The other public safety motion on the board's agenda deals with implementing the Juvenile Justice Development Plan and authorizes the chief probation officer to accept almost $5.5 million as part of the Youthful Offender Block Grant from the state Corrections Standards Authority.

Specifically, the motion, if approved, would enable the chief probation officer to hire people to fill 75 full-time positions.

The issues are expected to come before the board today at its regular meeting beginning at 9:30 a.m. at the Hall of Administration in downtown Los Angeles.
