Highlights of recommendations developed over the past 2 years by the Governor’s Crime Commission for North Carolina include: (1) appropriate funding to support alternative learning and structured day programs statewide for suspended and expelled youth; (2) increase the State appropriation for Child Advocacy Centers and make them part of the recurring budget; (3) include as a permanent, recurring line item, funding of the GangNet and Justice Xchange expansion proposal; (4) appropriate funding to develop training for Local Management Entities on trauma and abuse of domestic and sexual violence victims; and (5) amend GS 50B-9 so that it designates the Domestic Violence Commission as the agency that shall administer the Domestic Violence Center Fund, and transfer Commission from the Department of Administration to the Department of Crime Control and Public Policy. The recommendations included in this report on North Carolina’s legislative and policy agenda require further action which may include development of new legislation, modification of existing policies, or greater collaboration among State agencies and other key partners. The Governor’s Crime Commission has helped develop advancements and innovations responding to key issues such as gang violence prevention and intervention, homeland security, child abuse and neglect, disproportionate minority contact, and reentry and pretrial services.
