The City of San Jose will purchase pistols and digital trunk radios to enhance law enforcement efforts, as well as participate in the "Parent Project" for parents of at-risk youth. The County of Santa Clara will coordinate a program to address women's criminal justice involvement through initiatives to address womens' offender re-entry, in-custody special programs and workshops for female offenders, re-unification, and other topics.
