This 2002-03 California budget summary shows a continuing commitment to public safety in the face of a sharp revenue shortfall due to the effects of a national recession and the terrorist attacks in September 2001.
The Governor's Budget includes funding to support the various programs within the Youth and Adult Correctional Agency, Department of Justice, Office of Criminal Justice Planning, Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training, Office of the Inspector General, and the California Highway Patrol. Funding for these programs will increase to approximately $8.2 billion, a 0.7-percent increase over the revised 2001-02 budget. This includes full funding for the Citizens' Option for Public Safety and Juvenile Crime Prevention programs ($232.6 million), technology grants for local law enforcement ($35.4 million), small county law enforcement grants ($18.5 million), the War on Methamphetamine initiative ($15 million), and high technology crime and identity-theft efforts ($14.4 million). The 2002-03 judicial budget (Supreme Court, courts of appeal, Administrative Office of the Courts, and the Habeas Corpus Resource Center) totals $349.8 million, which includes $289.2 million in State operations and $60.6 million in local assistance. This amount reflects an increase in expenditures of $2.8 million over the revised 2001-02 budget. The Trial Court Funding budget includes $1.2 billion General Fund and approximately $1 billion in non-General Fund resources, for a total of $2.2 billion. This is a decrease of $21.3 million from the revised 2001-02 budget. Extensive figures and tables
